The Rise of Green Supply Chain Management: Between Complexity and Necessity

William Loivet, Atour Taghipour, and Dae Seok Kang
Abstract—From approximately 20 years ago, we have seen the emergence of a new concept called green supply chain. This phenomenon has spread to the whole world, including developed and developing countries and to all industries. The purpose of this paper is to trace the origins of this concept that has deeply changed the organizational structure of many companies. In addition, we will discuss different theories that have been used to analyze the implementation of green supply chain management. We will detail the characteristics of these theories by looking at the management of the supply chain. Finally, we will focus on the internal and external factors that can affect the implementation of green supply chain management and discuss the importance of performance.

Index Terms—Supply chain, green supply chain, complexity, management.
