Abstract

The main purpose of green supply chain is to ensure that the customer’s requirements and needs are met without compromising the sustainability aspect of environment and prevent the latter from getting polluted. The purpose of current study is to measure the impact of green supply chain upon sustainability so as to reduce the environmental pollution. The author(s) used questionnaire to collect the data for current study whereas field coexistence and interviews were also conducted with stakeholders. The research questions were posed at 185 workers to find a solution for the research problem. The study results arrived at a few conclusions. The results infer that some of the dimensions of green supply chain exert an influence on sustainable performance. The study found the most important treatments to overcome the weaknesses through smoothly-applicable recommendations. Keywords: green supply chain, sustainable performance.
