Muma B. Onyango, Richard B. Nyaoga, Robert B. Matwere, Onyango J. Owuor

Sustainability in the business operations stills remains a subject of interest especially in Kenya. This is because most organizations especially, manufacturing firms are in the initial stages of adopting sustainable practices. A few study already conducted in this area have revealed that there is still a knowledge gap that needs to be filled through research. For instance, a study conducted by Muma et al. (2014) on green supply chain management and environmental performance identified research gaps on the relationship between green supply chain management and other aspects of organizational performance. The study suggested further studies on the relationship between green supply chain management and economic performance. This study was therefore conducted to establish the relationship between green supply chain management and economic performance. The study adopted a correlational research design. The study concentrated on green procurement, green design and manufacturing, green distribution and reverse logistics aspects of green supply chain management and their relationship with economic performance. The study was conducted in all the 32 tea processing firms in Kericho and Bomet Counties-Kenya. To test the relationship between green supply chain management and economic performance, a correlation analysis was conducted. The findings of this study revealed a positive relationship between green supply chain management and economic performance. The study revealed that research gaps still exist on the relationship between green supply chain management and social performance and recommended further studies to be conducted to relate the two variables.
