On environmental issues, there are intensive studies which have been dealt with extensively by practitioners and academicians. There is an increasing pressure on businesses to improve economic and environmental performance. Green supply chain management (GSCM) is an emerging approach for economic and ecological benefit to manufacturers. This paper presents the case study on how GSCM practiced in Ford India in the areas of logistics, packaging and manufacturing processes, how GSCM influence with firm performance and its gain by extending across firms in developing markets such as India.
