Abstract: This paper focuses on the performance of green supply chains and adding the green concept to it so as to emphasise the importance of environmental issues and the need of eco-friendly systems. The purpose of this study is to propose a model for evaluating the effects of green policy on the performance of green supply chains. We show that supply chain collaboration is benefit enhancing when the levels of green damage caused by pollution are low. However, when the level of damage is high, it turns out that suppliers anticipate tougher green policy when they share information than when they do not, and so do not share information. This distorts the R&D decisions in ways that make the non-cooperative equilibrium benefit enhancing.

Keywords: green supply chains; green policy; innovative process; supply chain collaboration; R&D policy; performance measures; green SCM; supply chain management; GSCM; information sharing; cooperation; research and development; environmental pollution.
