Barriers of implementation of pro-environmental activities in supply chains

Open access

Abstract

A constant growth of interest in GSCM on the part of business practitioners creates a need to develop research within this field. One of the basic questions is why, despite numerous evidence of benefits resulting from the use of pro-environmental practices in supply chains, the level of GSCM implementations is low. Therefore, the aim of the paper is determining which barriers constitute the greatest obstacles on the way of GSCM implementation. The studies were conducted among Polish market entities. Therefore, they were prepared in the part of Europe in which there are not many studies regarding this topic. As a result of the conducted studies, it was determined that the greatest barriers for pro-environmental practices are included in the field which concerns knowledge and cost. What is more, the importance of particular barriers was specified in the paper.
