From the Mexican gulf oil spill of British Petroleum to Fukushima nuclear crisis of Japan. The awareness of impact on climate change, environmental pollution and natural resource depletion has led a wide range of stakeholders such as government, consumer and non-profit organization to put pressure on the companies to act in a more environmentally and socially responsible way. This study adopts both qualitative and quantitative approaches. Five Taiwanese green enterprises were interviewed along with thirty three questionnaires which were collected from other green enterprises for further analysis. This study attempts to explore how green entrepreneurial leader brings sustainable competitive advantage through building green human capital for the firm in the growing pressure of industrial environmental protection. The findings indicate that green entrepreneurial leaders articulate green vision, act as ethical role model, and identify environment related opportunity for exploitation. This leadership style influences the management practices on green human capital selection, development, and leverage which then lead to innovation, cost saving, and profitability.
