The purpose of the paper was to highlight the elements of green supply chain. The rise in greenhouse emissions and pollution of the environments by firms has precipitated the need for organizations to realign their supply chain operations with a view of conserving the scarce resources. Firms in the hospitality industry rely on energy and water as their key resource inputs in ensuring that they offer better services to clients. The paper looks at how firms can implement several elements of green supply chain in their processes.

This is a conceptual paper and the methodology used is a desktop research in which in depth literature review is done to highlight how firms can incorporate green supply chain tools in their supply chains. The analysis is based on previously conducted research from books and relevant journals and articles.

The findings of the paper confirm that firms need to implement green supply chain elements as a continuous process to achieve sustainability in the supply chain processes. The study concludes that firms need to enhance the levels of implementing green supply chain practices in managing their operations. This is an emerging supply chain management paradigm that will enable firms to realize long term sustainability in their operations.
