Abstract: Green supply chain management (GSCM) has emerged as a key business practice for organisations to make a balance between their operations and environmental performance. The aim of this study is to assess the impact of GSCM practices on environmental performance of organisation. Six GSCM practices were identified and propositions related to these GSCM practices were put forward. A research model was developed to examine the relationship between different GSCM practices and environmental performance outcomes. Data were collected from 171 respondents who are working as operations and supply chain professionals in manufacturing organisations. Exploratory factor analysis (EFA), confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was used for analysing data and hypotheses were tested through structural equation modelling (AMOS). The results of the study postulate that internal environmental management practices, management support practices and investment recovery practices have positive impact on environmental performance of organisation.
