Abstract

The study aimed at establishing the role of green supply chain practices on performance of the ministry of industrialization and enterprise development in Kenya. The specific green supply chain practices were material sourcing, green packaging, waste management systems and eco-design manufacturing. The study relied on primary data collected by administering 135 questionnaires where 108 were filled and returned. Pearson correlation was applied in the study to establish the relationship between the study variables. The findings indicated that material sourcing and performance of ministry of industrialization and enterprise development have a positive significant association (r=.313, p=0.001) ; green packaging and performance of ministry of industrialization and enterprise development was positive and significant (r=.329, p=0.000);  waste management system and performance of ministry of industrialization and enterprise development was positive and significant (r=.345, p=0.000) ; Eco-design manufacturing and performance of ministry of industrialization and enterprise development was also established to be positive and significant (r=.295, p=0.000).
