Building on the natural resource-based view of the firm (NRBV), the study extends the body of sustainability knowledge by relating sustainable capabilities to eco-innovation and environmental performance in industrial firms within a developing context. Validating and analysing survey responses of 102 managers from various industries using structural
equation modelling have revealed that sustainable ordination capability is a strong determinant of eco-innovation and
environmental performance. Similarly, eco-innovation practices have emerged as a powerful determinant of environmental performance. Surprisingly, sustainable human capital and sustainable collaborations capabilities show no significant effect on environmental performance. Managerial and theoretical implications are also discussed.
