Green Supply Chain Management orientation and firm performance: evidence from South Korea

With environmental regulations taking effects worldwide, green supply chain management (GSCM) has risen to prominence due to its emphasis on tackling complex environmental processes while improving bottom line performance. Since GSCM involves transferring green knowledge and standardizing production and delivery processes, the success of joint efforts among supply chain partners hinges on how tightly rust relationship is built. Although prior research on sustainability has studied the issues in product design, producer's responsibility, and environmental policy, few studies have investigated the role of trust and information sharing in aligning GSCM orientation in a supply chain context. This study shows that GSCM orientation positively influences on firm performance and the mediating role of supply chain partner's trust and information sharing, based on 125 companies from South Korea.
