Abstract:

Green Supply Chain Management (GSCM) is a new concept for improving the capability of the supply chain through sustainability. Manufactures are more concerned in profit making rather than to save environment. However it is important to balance between profitability and saving the environment. The paper is aimed at studying the various activities of the supply chain processes in selected small and medium scale industries of North Karnataka and it makes an effort to find how much eco-friendly they are in their logistics as well as supply chain activities. This study addresses the major activities of the green supply chain; namely green procurement, green manufacturing, green warehousing, green distribution, green packaging, and green transportation. Through the literature review the various environment factors affecting manufacturing sector were identified and discussed. A questionnaire is designed with factors affecting the sustainable supply chain and was used for the survey. The data analysis is carried out to find the sustainability performance of various manufacturing activities towards green future. The result analysis indicates that green initiatives have started but needs acceleration to higher level.
