In last couple of decades, green supply chain become a competitive strategy for survival in tough competitive market. There is no doubt that a number of European countries already adopted green supply chain practices successfully. Green supply chain concept gives a way to conduct a sustainable business and also prevent to environments from harmful effects of chemicals and pollution. On the other hand, green supply chain also reduce the cost of the end-to-end supply chain [1]. Many visible and invisible factors are exists in the process of reverse logistics but main factors are social reasons, Economic, Legal & Environment policies. But the economic factor is the directly involve in the implementation of reverse logistics. This paper will help to understand the phenomena involved in green supply chain management implementation as well as the barriers and drivers involved in green supply chain execution phases.
