Interactions among Inter-organizational Measures for Green Supply Chain Management

Kang, Moon Jung; Hwang, Jongwoon

Collaboration among supply chain partners is essential to enhance environmental performance during the life cycle of a product. Inter-organizational measures for green supply chain management tend to show diverse patterns because of various requirements that emerge in a complex supply chain. However, this diversity hampers the comprehensive understanding and systematic adoption of these measures. Therefore, this paper classifies various inter-organizational measures for green supply chain management into several collaboration patterns and analyzes their structural relations through an interpretive structural modeling. The results reveal the collaboration patterns that have higher driving power and dependency than other patterns and, thus, require further attentions.
