Green Supply Chain Management Issues: A Literature Review Approach

G Renuka

Abstract


The rapid worldwide industrialization has led to the deterioration of environment in the recent years. Industrial effluents have severely damaged and polluted our environment and caused ozone depletion. Pollution not only affects the health of human beings but has also become a burden to global environment. In this paper, an attempt has been made to discuss various issues related to GSCM. Concept of GSCM, functional Model of an organization supply chain with environmentally influence , differences between conventional SCM and GSCM and models for implementation of GSCM registered in the literature have been discussed. Various approaches of GSCM, implementation of a Green Supply Chain and factors affecting GSCM have been also described.

Keywords
