The dissertation includes three essays. These three empirical studies apply structural equation modeling (SEM) to examine key issues in green supply chain management. The hypothesized model is tested using a sample of supply chain managers derived from a Dun and Bradstreet database. The data collection is through a large web-based survey. The first essay examines how a firm's proactive environmental management strategy influences operational performance. The second essay examines the effect of how top management responds to pressure from a firm's rivals and stakeholders to implement green supply management practices. The last essay examines how environmental management competitive pressure from main competitors influences a firm to pursue and produce new environmental innovations into the marketplace (e.g., focal firm's green success) through its green supply chain integration activities.
