Abstract

This paper aims to discuss theoretically the Green Supply Chain (GSC)
concept, its implementation and prospective benefits by reviewing the current
and past literature on the subject. The main issues found in this research are
about: basic steps to create the GSC, methods to manage it and the result of its
implementation. GSC is usually started by an end producer, which has an
environmental management system, and desires to pass good environmental
practices to its suppliers. The implementation of GSC can be also done by
market requirements. The results include cost reduction, resource conservation,
public image improvement, and market competitiveness among others benefits
that are describe in this work. Problems for greening the supply chain are the
reduction of flexibility of suppliers and the culture of organizations. This paper
can help companies meet global market requirements and public administrators
to understand the environmental performance through industrial clusters
