Abstract

Since the last decade, the business world is fully conscious about the environmental problems and green products for sustainable development. This fact has been seriously considered in the automotive industry supply chain where the company and its associate suppliers are socially and environmentally responsible. Hence, green supply chain has emerged as a key approach for automotive industry to become environmentally sustainable and supply chain integration becomes a vital contributor to supply chain performance and the firm competitiveness. This chapter has reviewed refereed articles related to the topic. This is used as a basis to conceptualize green supply chain integration in the automotive industry. Therefore, there are a growing need to discuss further on internal and external integration including the activity, information technology and logistic integration. This chapter will also discuss on the integrations of both information and material flows between supply chain partners and the effect on operational performance and competitiveness in automotive industry.
