The present research was conducted with the aim of designing a model for branding Green products in the motor oil industry. The statistical population of the research includes experts and academic experts in the field of marketing and branding and a number of marketing expert managers in the motor oil industry. The statistical sample was selected by purposeful judgment of 14 people. Data collection tools include library studies and semi-structured interviews with experts. The validity of the interview questions was confirmed by the context method and its reliability was confirmed by the retest method (0.883). Data analysis was performed with a qualitative approach using data based theorizing method and the coding process was performed in three stages of open, axial and selective coding. Based on this, each component of the coding paradigm was described and the branding model of Green products in the motor oil industry was drawn, and at the end, a theory based on 18 theorems was created. Based on the calculated model, casual conditions (including private sector conditions and public sector conditions), central category (Green product branding process), bedrock (including Green branding leadership, Green intellectual capital and production infrastructure and Green technology), contextual factors (including Environmental factor in both domestic and foreign industry), strategies(including implementation of Green branding strategies, Green brand identity, integrated Green brand communication, and joint branding) and consequence, ( attitudinal and functional consequences of Green brand) are explained in a paradigm model. Finally, the relationships between them were theorized in the selected model.
