Green management is a new management method to increase organizational capacity for dealing with environmental challenges. With the implementation of green management, organizations will be able to achieve sustainable development in economic, social and environmental areas. The green management model, which enjoys organizational excellence model (EFQM) approaches in its design, has 8 criteria: leadership, policy, organizational resources, organizational partners, process, economic results, social results and environmental results. The first five criteria are the company enablers. This is an experimental study about the implementation of green management model for a real case study in MOGPC for examining the enabler criteria of green management model in the company. The required data were collected through a questionnaire designed based on the model criteria and sub-criteria, field study and interviews with the company experts and managers. In this study, the highest score for enabler criteria belongs to the leadership criterion. This is due to the deployment of integrated management system and the management support of the system in the company. Lack of integrated responsibility, incomplete implementation and lack of direct monitoring for implementing green management are among the weaknesses of this system in the company. The study results showed that MOGPC is at the beginning of the implementation of the enabler criteria of green management model, and signs of green approach were observed in some criteria of green management model in the company.
