Chapter 1. Introduction to the Green Supply Chain Management

Abstract
In today’s businesses, environmental issues are becoming more and more critical. For managing the environment, there are strict laws and regulations of the government. Demand is also increasing from the buyer’s side for the greener products. Since the last decades, industries of many developed countries like the USA, Europe, and Japan, have shifted into environmental-friendly industries or producing greener products, and they have turned now on the strategy of future sustainability. There are no doubts that still greener products have a narrow market as compare to nongreener products. However, in the long term, there is an expanding and constructive sign which is present for the future growth in this potential market of eco-friendly products.

Chapter 2. Empirical Studies on Green Supply Chain Management

Abstract
The principal objective of this chapter is to discuss the previously published literature and construct hypotheses. To fulfill the objective of this chapter, I explore several areas of the previous literature in terms of defining the conceptual gap that this research fills. I then build hypotheses and models to establish the context of this study model. The concept of GSCM (green supply chain management) or environmental friendly supply chain is evolving. In the last couple of decades, some countries have adopted green supply chain practices in their business activities, and this trend is continuously growing.
