Abstract—Green supply chain management (GSCM) continues to be an important research agenda among the researchers. However, there are still limited studies to investigate GSCM practices and its implementation especially in Malaysia context. Since green issues are new and still developing in Malaysia, constant study is needed to fully understand and update information regarding this area. Firms in developing countries like Malaysia are still in the learning process on how to incorporate the green supply chain management practices in their daily operations. Therefore, this conceptual paper is intended to provide insights on the implementation and practices of GSCM, especially on its relation to the integration mechanisms. This paper is expected to provide a thorough review on the interdependent relationship of GSCM practices and supply chain integration towards sustainable performance. It is hoped that this conceptual paper would be useful in helping manufacturing firms to identify an effective approach towards successful green supply chain practices that contribute to sustainable performance.
