    Abstract

    Kajian lepas telah membuktikan inovasi adalah kunci utama kepada kejayaan sesebuah syarikat. Tetapi, sangat sedikit k!\iian tentang inovasi hijau yang dilakukan dalam konteks kontraktor binaan di Malaysia. Objektif umum kajian ini adalah untuk menaksir takat daya inovatif hijau di kalangan kontraktor di Malaysia, serta untuk meneliti faktor dalaman dan luaran yang mempengaruhi daya inovatif hijau mereka. Kontraktor telah distratifikasi mengikut negeri. Pensampelan rawak mudah berkadar telah digunakan untuk memilih firma-firma kontraktor bangunan. Responden bagi kajian ini adalah kontraktor bangunan yang berdaftar dengan Badan Pembangunan Industri Pembinaan (CIDB) di dua belas (12) buah negeri di Semenanjung Malaysia. Buku panduan CIDB, yang diterbitkan dalam bulan Disember, tahun 2012 telah digunakan untuk mendapatkan populasi bagi kajian ini. Sejumlah 500 borang, yang mengandungi soal selidik kendiri berstruktur telah dikirim kepada responden. Sejumlah 293 borang soal selidik yang lengkap diisi dan berguna telah dikembalikan, menghasilkan kadar respons 58.6 peratus. Untuk mencapai objektif pertama kajian ini, skor min bagi daya inovatif hijau firma telah dihitung menggunakan statistik perihalan. Previous researchers have proven that innovation is the key success factor for any firm. Unfortunately, only a few researches on green innovation have been done in the Malaysian contractors' context. The general objectives of this study were to assess the extent of green innovativeness among contractors in Malaysia, and to examine the internal and external factors that influence their green innovativeness. Contractors were stratified according to states. A Proportionate simple random sampling was used to select building contractors firms. Respondent for this study were building contractors that registered with the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) in the twelve (12) states of peninsular Malaysia. The CIDB directory published in Dec 2012 was used to obtain the population for this study. A total of 500 structured, self-administered questionnaires were sent to respondents and 293 duly completed and useful questionnaires were returned, yielding 58.6 per cent response rate. To achieve the first objective of this study, the mean score for firm green innovativeness was computed using descriptive statistics.
