New, Steve, Green, Ken and Morton, Barbara (2002) An analysis of private versus public sector responses to the environmental challenges of the supply chain. Journal of Public Procurement, 2 (1).Full text not available from this repository.
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.
