Abstract

The purpose of this research is to identify the effectiveness Green Supply Chain Practices to the environmental performance. Green Supply Chain Management is a fundamental part of sustainable supply chain management. The pressure on companies to embrace green processes has increased significantly in the last few years.Within the broad concept of green supply chain management, a review of the existing literature has highlighted a need to understand how Green Supply Chain Practices (GSCP) can contribute to improving company performance from an environmental point of view.This research seems to reinforce the proposition by Carter and Rogers (2008), suggesting that “firms that are dependent upon key, external resources can improve their economic sustainability through vertical coordination”.Companies can improve their overall performance (thus, also economic sustainability) through the adoption of Green Supply Chain Practices. This paper aims to identify the Green Supply Chain Practices adopted by companies in terms of specific practices implemented and to explore how this adoption can improve the environmental performance.From the previous studies, a new theoretical framework will be developed for the future research.
