The data collection instrument for the study was structured questionnaire designed for the study and the simple percentage was employed to describe the demographic characteristics of the respondents, while the Structural Equation Modelling was used to test the hypotheses. The results reveal that green lending, green investment, and green bonds have a positive association with environmental performance, but are insignificant. Evidence Further reveals that green training and green technology have a significant influence on environmental performance.It was also revealed that green monetary policy does not mediate between green lending, green investment, green bonds, green training, green technology, and environmental performance.
