Abstract

Increasing environment related problems and societal issues generally emerged due to different activities of the supply chain that pushes the industries to move towards social responsible Green Supply Chain Management (GSCM) practices. To deal with this, an attempt has been made here to identify, analyze and model the Critical Success Factors (CSFs) to implement GSCM towards sustainability in industries in Indian perspective. Twenty six CSFs to implement GSCM towards sustainability are recognized by means of the literature review and in discussions with experts. A solution methodology based on the Interpretive Structural Modeling (ISM) technique is used to propose a structural model, which not only helps in understanding the contextual relationship among these CSFs, but also in determining their interdependence to implement GSCM towards sustainability. Further, the importance of CSFs has been determined based on their driving and dependence power by using MICMAC analysis. “Scarcity of Natural Resources” has been identified as most important CSF that may force industries to implement GSCM practices to ensure their business sustainability. A case example of Indian mining industry is presented to show the real-world applicability of the proposed model. This work may help practitioners, regulators and academicians to focus their efforts towards implementation of sustainable GSCM on various levels in business.
