Abstract

A relevant and practical research object is analyzed in the article – green supply chain management measures’ application realization. Despite the multiple theoretical and empirical research executed, there is still lack of Siauliai regional outlook of the studies revealing the advantages and disadvantages for applying the methods of green logistics. The purpose of the article is identifying the management tools of the green supply chain in the functional stages of the supply chain, to determine their expression and obstacles in implementing these measures in the enterprises of the Siauliai region. To achieve the green supply chain management measures’ application realization and problems in Siauliai region’s companies, scientific literature analysis and a survey (n = 275) were conducted in regional companies. Research has revealed that most of Siauliai region’s companies apply the green measures in manufacturing and service, while the most problematic area is utilization. Siauliai district’s production companies prioritize the green supply chain management measures more than trading and service companies.
