Purpose: Green or sustainable supply chain management (GSCM) has in

recent years attracted much attention from academia and practitioners in all

part of the world. In recent years, all humanity has experienced severe climate

change which is widely attributed to human activity. Harmful emissions have

made a major contribution to recent climate change which presents major

challenges and threats to the entire human race in form of global warming,

earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunami, and floods. The aim of this paper is to

propose a conceptual GSCM framework grounded in Knowledge Based Theory

(KBT) and outlined further research directions which can take existing GSCM

literature to a next level.

Design/Methodology/Approach: In this paper we have used a systematic

literature review to identify building blocks of the conceptual framework, which

is the principal contribution of the present paper.

Findings: In this paper we have proposed a conceptual framework for green

supply chain network which is firmly grounded in organizational theory. This

framework can be further tested using data collected from multiple

organizations using split-questionnaire.

Research implications: The current paper is an attempt to develop a

conceptual framework which is grounded in KBT. The study helps to extent the

prior works which lacks theory focused approach.
