Abstract: The aim of the present research was to identify and analyse the interactions among drivers of implementing green supply chain management (GSCM) in automobile industries located in National Capital Region (NCR) of India. To meet out the above objective, 11 drivers were identified and analysed for the purpose of developing an ISM-based model; which provide a visible representation of driver's position, based on their driving and dependence nature. The analysis reveals that the driver 'legislative and regulatory compliances' occupy the base position due to its high driving nature. The other drivers namely: improve quality and ISO-14000 certification exists at the top positions and can be seen as an output of ISM model. The findings of this research may enable managers to make appropriate policy decisions and to formulate the strategies towards various enablers/drivers, depending upon the corresponding importance, for the effective implementation of green aspects in the supply chain.
