Abstract in different language: The urgent concerns for environmental issues and growing demand for green products have made companies pay much more attention to green marketing. Although, many companies invest in green marketing, but not all of them gain as much as they invest. Most of failures of investments in green marketing are rooted in the fact that customers doubt both the real green performance of these products and the real intention of companies regarding green products. This research, being quantitative in nature, attempts to investigate the impact of traditional branding constructs (perceived quality of the brand, credibility of the brand) and green branding constructs (perceived value of a green brand, the green brand image, and brand equity) on the green purchase intention of customers. The hypotheses have been developed in the form of a conceptual model to investigate the relationship of these constructs. The research focuses on consumers of certain liquid washing detergent products. All the data were collected using questionnaires and the analysis of the data was conducted utilizing LISREL 8 and SPSS 16. The results indicate that perceived brand quality has a positive impact on the perceived value of a green brand, brand credibility, and brand image. In addition, green brand value and green brand image have a positive impact on brand equity. This research can serve as validation of the constructs to fi ll the gap in the investigation of green brand dimensions. Further analysis shows that green brand equity has a meaningful impact on the green purchase intention of the customers, however the impact of brand credibility on brand equity has not been proved.
