The main objective of this study is to analyze the complex interrelationships among environmental drivers, Green Supply Management (GSM) approaches and performance. Most of the studies assume that there is a single approach to GSM, although evidence suggests that there are multiple approaches, e.g. assessment and collaboration. Moreover, the literature that analyzes the effect of GSM programs on performance provides mixed results. Lastly, the influence of environmental drivers (e.g. government, customers, society, etc.) on the adoption of each GSM approach (e.g. assessment and collaboration) was mostly studied using case studies. Thus, the purpose of this paper is to contrast different approaches to GSM based on quantitative data, and to analyze their respective performance implications. Moreover, we aim to analyze the influence of environmental drivers on different GSM approaches.
