It is also explored that how manufacturers and retailers are coordinating the efforts of greening in the supply chain. The results obtained from modelling specific to the price premium effect of greening on various parameters such as price sensitivity, effectiveness of greening efforts and cost of greening, on the optimal pricing and efforts decisions by the channel partners are analysed and compared from industry practice perspective. Further, the obtained results are summarised and presented in the form of different case studies for projecting its academic and practical implication.
