There is a need to consolidate environmental issues and try to find solutions to the problems that are detrimental to the environment. Researches show that the idea of green supplychain is not fully developed. There is a need to understand green supply-chain management from a different perspective. Green supply chain helps in utilizing all the available productive resources effectively. By implementing green supply chain management principles in the business decision making process, organization can purchase green resources that will help in providing environmental friendly products and achieve greater desired results. The growing importance of supply chain is driven mainly by worsening of the environment. The waste and emission caused by supply chains have become one of major concerns of serious environmental problems which include acid rains and global warming. One of the vital facet of green supply chain is to improve both environmental and economic performance simultaneously. This paper mainly focuses on optimization and implementation of Green supply chain operations to reduce environmental problems.
