Almost every operating enterprise in the market has the supply chain. Dependingon the size and nature of the enterprise, supply chain can take many forms, but the basicelements of each supply chain are as follows: suppliers, production and distribution togetherwith the common links between them. Now, in the consciousness of nearly every organizationthat works to market is the belief that one of the determinants of its continuous development isthe protection of the environment. Because of this, companies try, during their actions, tocause the least harm on natural environment. The following article presents the classic supplychain that occurs in manufacturing companies and how, the implementation of proposedsolutions into it, may bring the result that classic supply chain will become moreenvironmentally friendly and "green".
