heal.abstract
This dissertation was written as part of the MSc in Sustainable Development at the International Hellenic University. Nowadays, environmental problems are continually increasing through uncontrolled business activities. As long as businesses are under huge pressure by the environmental corporations, they should adopt green supply chain management practices in order to minimize their adverse effects on the environment. In this framework, the green supply chain is considered as an essential and important factor that aims at securing an effective, successful and smooth cooperation between the stakeholders and the different stages among them. The scope of this study is to realize the situation of sustainable supply chain management practices among the global large corporations. Many organizations have initiated green sustainability practices in their strategic management activities in order to become more competitive and acquire great benefits. Large global corporations with their customers and suppliers have huge societal environmental and economic effects. Due to this fact the comprehension of their green supply chain practices will help us understand what is necessary to be done according to the current corporate sustainability management.
