Abstract

This study fills the gap made by past studies regarding green intellectual capital on competitive advantage and develops them. This research examines the impact of green intellectual capital on competitive advantage with Islamic business ethics as the moderating variable. The construct of green intellectual capital is shown by three dimensions: green human capital, green structural capital, and green human capital. The population of this study is Muslim batik entrepreneurs. The data was collected through questionnaires distributed to 313 respondents, Muslim batik entrepreneurs, who were selected using purposive sampling method and processed using interaction regression analysis. This study finds that the three independent variables, i.e. green human capital, green structural capital, and green relational capital, have significant impacts on the competitive advantage of small and medium enterprises. Furthermore, Islamic business ethics only moderate the relationship between green human capital and competitive advantage. In addition, corporate investment in green intellectual capital not only is demanded by regulation, environmentalists, consumers, competition and the government but also improves the competitive advantage of small and medium enterprises.
