Abstract

This paper examines differences and similarities between private and public sectors regarding green supply: the incorporation of environmental considerations into procurement and supply chain relationships. While there are considerable differences between the sectors, there are two key areas of similarity: Firstly, responses in both sectors are heavily influenced by organizational structure and patterns of decision-making and information flow. Secondly, the success of green supply initiatives appears to be heavily dependent on organization's ability to align activity with dominant corporate objectives.
