Dani, Samir (2011) Green Supply Chains: An Indian Perspective. In: Proceedings of the 16 th International Symposium on Logistics (ISL 201 1 ) Rebuilding Supply Chains for a Globalised World. Nottingham University. ISBN 978 085358 278 6

In today’s business environment global supply chains have to deal with the complexities of sourcing, logistics and costs. In order to keep costs down, supply chains are long and thus have to deal with complex inventory management challenges. Another challenge faced by supply chains is that of being environmentally friendly or green. As the discussion regarding climate change gathers momentum, the supply chains will be held under scrutiny for carbon emissions and use of fuel. Green supply chains are designed to be environmentally friendly from the raw material phase to product disposal. This paper considers the Indian perspective with regards to green supply chains and questions the barriers and enablers for implementing green supply chains in India. The study is exploratory and utilises desk research and a short survey.
