The attention of supply chain researchers is ushering on the area of sustainable procurement since the start of this century. Therefore, this study urges to recognise the influencing factors of the implementation of sustainable procurement (SP) practices in the manufacturing firms. For the purpose of investigation, an online field questionnaire was established through the existing literature on green procurement. This survey was sent to 170 manufacturing firms in Malaysia. The recorded responses were analysed using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS). The findings reveal that regulatory pressure and customer pressure are the main elements encouraging the SP practices. Specifically, the regulatory pressure has the highest level of impact on SP practices. This paper contributes the instrumental insights in SP amongst manufacturing firms. Moreover, it also adds the extensive literature in the field of sustainable procurement which is inadequately explored.
