    Abstract

    In this paper we report on results from a cross-sectional survey with manufacturers in four typical Chinese industries, i.e., power generating, chemical/petroleum, electrical/electronic and automobile, to evaluate their perceived green supply chain management (GSCM) practices and relate them to closing the supply chain loop. Our findings provide insights into the capabilities of Chinese organizations on the adoption of GSCM practices in different industrial contexts and that these practices are not considered equitably across the four industries. Academic and managerial implications of our findings are discussed.
