Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to understand current and desired status of the environmental responsiveness of supply chains in India. The objective of this study is to explore the framework for GSCM implementation in Indian context. A self-administered questionnaire was developed containing three parts, i.e., GSCM drivers, GSCM practices and GSCM performance. The total sample size was 180 consisting of MSMEs in chemical business. The dimensions for GSCM drivers, practices and performance were explored and their interrelationships were analysed. It was found that GSMC drivers create significant impact on GSCM practices, which in turn creates significant impact on GSCM performance. Most relevant studies about framework for GSCM implementation has not addressed properly in Indian context. This new framework fills the gap of the absence of strategies for GSCM implementation in India.
