Abstract: After the starting of industrialization in case of manufacturing, the concerned management and even the researchers are looking forward to incorporate some amount of automation so that the human effort can be minimized and the saved energy can be used for innovation and other important tasks. In the present scenario, all over the world the level of automation is highest in all the manufacturing units and it has distorted the very balance of our ecosystem and environment. As and when the respective agencies were able to see and feel it, the damage was done. From the last three decades many of the agencies, which are the well-wishers of both the parties i.e. the manufacturers and the environment protectors. The process started from protecting the emission of harmful gases in the environment and then at the second level strategies were formulated to change the system at the ground level where such events may not occur. Green Human Resource Management (GHRM) Practices is again another such initiative, this may not show a major turnaround but then again the collective efforts will be appreciated in the future. This present paper is focused on the implementation of GHRM practices in the manufacturing units. Some amount of secondary data is being evaluated and analysis is based on primary data. Primary data is taken from the respondents working in HR departments of the sampled companies. SPSS Ver. 20.0 is considered for the analysis of data.
