Green supply chain implementation practices and supply chain performance of battery manufacturing firms in Kenya
This study examines the practices in implementing green supply chain management (GSCM) and analyses their impact on environmental, economic, and supply chain performance by considering the business strategy as an organizational focus. A sample of 190 dataset was collected from ISO 14001 certified manufacturing companies in Kenya and used to test the proposed research hypotheses. Factor analysis was used examine the construct validity while multivariate liner regression was employed to test criterion validity. Legislation and regulation (re-active practice) was considered as a priority leading to enhance the environmental, economic, and intangible performance. Reverse logistics (pro-active practice) indicated a low level of adoption and does not show a significantly impact to any of the three GSCM performance. The results of this study suggested that organizations need to be aware that pursuing a low cost strategy may impact on their ability to invest in GSCM. Finally, this study is the first attempt to explore GSCM implementation reflecting by business strategy and intuitional drivers.
