Green purchasing and supply policies: do they improve companies' environmental performance?

New, Steve, Green, Ken and Morton, Barbara (1998) Green purchasing and supply policies: do they improve companies' environmental performance? Supply Chain Management: An international Journal, 3 (2). pp. 89-95.

Abstract

Asks how does green purchasing change the environmental performance of the firms in a supply chain/network and what is the influence of supply chain and industry structure on that performance? Do such changes contribute to companies’ overall environmental performance and to sustainability? Discusses these, and related questions, by exploring the activities of the UK hardware retailer, B&Q, as an example of green purchasing and supply in action.
