Authors(1) :-Hamidreza Saeeidi

The main objective of this research is to study the effect of environmental policy-making on implementation of green supply chain. In recent years, emergence of new technologies and creation of immense transformations in the world markets have made the supply chain management necessary more than before in a manner that different organizations for creation and retention of their competitive situation and position have to use of the theories of supply chain management. Preservation of environment has doubled the importance of the green supply chain in the recent years.The finding of this study implied that the improvement of environmental performance in the production process domain, management and optimization of energy consumption, management of wastes, education, investigation and organizational culture are as the most important priorities of policy-making for achieving the successful implementation of green supply chain. Finally, a lack of dynamic approach in organization as well as for suppliers along observance of environmental standards and social responsibility is a significant concern of green supply chain. Moreover, a lack of the appropriate information infrastructures and communications technology for the implementation of green supply chain is identified as the most important limitations for operating the environmental policies for the green supply chain implementation.
