Green Supply Chain Management (GSCM) is an environmental innovation, which integrates the factors that affect environment into supply chain management. Due to recent changes in environmental requirements affecting manufacturing practices, increasing attention is given to developing environmental management strategies for the supply chain. The purpose of this research is to propose ways or models used to evaluate factors that affect Green Supply Chain Management. The research investigates the environmental factors that affect the supply chain, which leads to the development of an extended environmental supply chain. The research reviews some previous work done on Green Supply Chain and also finds and proposes the new direction area of this emerging field. A detailed review is used to sort out the literature, and develop the research direction of the study.
