Purpose: To compete and survive in the global market the stakeholders, such as regulatory authorities, customers, competitors, non-governmental organisations and employees, are asking for increasingly sustainable design, processes and products. According to the World Bank 2012 and United Nations Environment Programme 2012 environmental issues such as depletion of ozone layer, climatic changes, pollution, loss of biodiversity, degradation and depletion of air, water, minerals and land has been a biggest problem in front of India for having sustainable products. After the economic liberalization policies in 1991 the growth rate has been increased by 42.7%. As per National Manufacturing Policy (NMP) Government of India is planning to increase Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in the manufacturing sector from the current level of 16% to 25% by 2025. From the literature survey it is clear that to address environmental and social sustainability, right from raw material to the finished product till end customer, Green Supply Chain Management (GSCM) is only the answer to make whole supply chain more environmental sustainable thus by integrating the traditional supply chain practices with environmental friendly practices. Design/methodology/approach: Identification of main and subindicators required for implementation of GSCM, through literature review and experts’ opinions from industry person and academicians. Findings: This paper identifies the GSCM implementation strategies into main sixteen indicators. Main indicators are Non-Members of Supply Chain, Top Management Perspective, Eco Product Design, Eco Procurement, Eco Manufacturing, Internal Environmental Management, Green Packaging, Eco Marketing and Communication, Eco Logistics Design, Environmental Performance, Operational Performance, Economic Performance, Performance of Human and Technological Resources, Performance of Vendor Management, Owners’ Satisfaction and Customer Co-Operation. These indicators will play an important role in greening the supply chain.
