Prior research has produced ample evidence showing that agility affects performance outcomes; however, we know little about the link between agility and collaborative processes toward environmental sustainability. This study examines the relationship between operational agility and environmental collaboration, mediated by individual creativity and flexible work arrangements. Using multilevel analysis of data obtained from 249 managers of 66 multinational enterprises (MNEs) in Turkey, we find that operational agility through individual creativity and flexible work arrangements leads to greater environmental collaboration. We contribute to the streams of literature on agility, international management, and environmental sustainability by elucidating that operational agility of emerging market MNEs tends to reduce environmental impacts and that individual creativity and flexible work arrangements facilitate environmental collaboration to attain environmental success.
