Abstract

This study focuses on aspects related to green supply chain management, including the level of supply chain integration and the effect of implementation of pro-environmental activities carried out among vertically integrated entities. The subject of the research were Polish manufacturing enterprises. Based on the obtained results, it has been proved that a higher level of integration in the supply chain leads to higher pro-environmental results obtained for the surveyed enterprises, co-operators in the supply chain and the further and closer environment of the enterprise, including the natural environment itself. As part of the conducted research, it was also determined that the main beneficiaries of the benefits resulting from the implementation of pro-environmental activities are internal stakeholders.
