Abstract


Purpose: The purpose of this study was to assess green innovation as a mediating variable in the relationship between green supply chain management and firm performance.

Green innovation mediated the relationship between green supply chain management and firm performance.

Research limitations/implications: The limitation of this study was using companies listed on the PROPER program, so it needed to be studied by applying other companies.

Companies in Indonesia are increasingly faced with pressure from stakeholders to implement green supply chain management.
