Abstract

Despite the growth of dimensions in previous studies on drivers for the adaption of Green Supply Chain Management (GSCM), previous studies have not suitably explored the role of strategic orientation dimension as driver of GSCM adaption. However, the purpose of this research is to examine the Environmental Orientation (EO) and Green Information Technology Orientation (GITO) as dimensions to the strategic orientation on the accreditation of Green Supply Chain Management adaption. A survey of 250 large manufacturing organizations operating in Amman (Jordan) carried out, with 139 usable participants obtained. This study is a quantitative research approach. The results show that the strategic orientation was positive and significant to the adaption of GSCM overall. In particular, EO, GITO had significant and positive influences on GSCM adaption. EO and GITO are highly recognized as the material resource and backbone for running the business smoothly. To the researcher's knowledge, this is the first study that experimentally examines the Environmental Orientation (EO) and Green Information Technology Orientation (GITO) as dimensions to the strategic orientation on the accreditation of Green Supply Chain Management adaption in manufacturing organizations operating in Amman, Jordan. Additionally, this study attempts to narrow the gap in the available literature, it contributes to the literature on GSCM through the use of resource-based view theory and explores the relationships of the strategic orientation dimensions of organization resources with GSCM.

Keywords: Green supply chain management practices, Strategic orientation, Environmental orientation, Green information technology orientation, Jordan.
