Abstract

Industries are facing pressure to reduce pollution and become more eco-friendly due to increasing environmental awareness among customers and due to government regulations. Because of these reasons, industries are now adopting eco-friendly concepts to reduce pollution in the entire manufacturing process. The green supply chain management (GSCM) concept is a methodology to achieve a pollution free environment from procurement to after sales of products. This paper identifies the foremost barriers to implementing GSCM, ranked on the basis of significant factors in the Indian plastic processing industry. Thirty-eight barriers were identified from the available literature and through consultation with industry experts and academicians. They were statistically analysed on the basis of opinions from experts, using statistical tools like T-test, expectation values and analysis of variance (ANOVA). Keywords: green supply chain management; GSCM; barriers; analysis of variance; ANOVA; plastic processing industry. Reference to this paper should be made as follows: Mathiyazhagan, K., Haq, A.N. and Baxi, V. (2016) `Analysing the barriers for the adoption of green supply chain management ­ the Indian plastic industry perspective', Int. J.
