This paper was intended to examine the effects of internal and external factors of Small and Medium-sized Corporations (SMC) on green management performances through the establishment and utilization of Information Technology (IT) and building external relations. The results of the study showed that of the corporate internal factors, the interest levels of CEOs concerning the environment did not significantly affect the establishment and utilization of information systems that required large expenses and investments in technological core competencies. Of the corporate external factors, the intensity of competition within the industry was shown to have a significant effect on building relationships for information and knowledge, but not on the establishment and utilization of information systems.
