A Bibliometric Literature Review of Green Supply Chain Management and Its Impacts Using VOSviewer and R (Bibliometrix)


This article applies a bibliometric analysis approach to explore the concept of Green Supply Chain Management (GSCM) and its impacts using a relational technique on existing literature. It uses data sourced primarily from the Scopus database. A total of 652 documents by 1959 authors were retrieved based on narrowed search criteria to obtain relevant publications in the research area. Publications from 2017 to 2022 were used to conduct the analysis. The approach used both VOSviewer and bibliometrics for co-authorship, keyword co-occurrence, bibliographic coupling and co-citations to underscore the scientific evolution of the topic. The objective of the analysis is to identify predominant themes as well as emerging concepts related to the topic and to make significant theoretical contributions to the study area by providing future research directions. The result of the analysis highlights the main information, publication trends, impactful authors and sources, most cited documents, institutional productivity over time, co-authorship network, a three-fold plot of the evolution of the research field, bibliographic coupling, keyword co-occurrence and prominent relationships. These are visually represented in tables and strategic diagrams for easy analysis and understanding of the state of the art in GSCM research. The review is an effort to identify theoretical gaps, guide researchers and industry professionals in their research and operations within the field of management with emphasis on GSCM and coordinate research efforts across and among countries and authors respectively.

1. Introduction

The trend of industrialization is an indication that more natural resources are needed to ensure the continuous production of goods and services that support human livelihood (Scherr, 2000) . The rapid development of industry has accumulated a lot of economic wealth (Qin, 2019) through the transformation of natural resources into goods and services. Over the years, the production chain has resulted in significant environmental impacts (Krishnan et al., 2020) and efforts must be made to mitigate the negative effects that threaten the existence of both flora and fauna. The production process generates waste which contributes to climate change and global warming (Lan et al., 2022) . These waste products cause air, water and land pollution and contribute to environmental degradation.

Environmental pollution is the primary cause of disease outbreaks which affect the quality of human life (Manisalidis et al., 2020) . Amid these negative impacts as a result of the rudimentary supply chain process, a new concept of green supply chain emerged. This concept encompasses the adoption of practices in the supply chain which mitigate negative environmental impacts (García Alcaraz et al., 2022) . The ultimate aim of this concept is to ensure environmental sustainability. The adoption of green supply chain in business operations can be likened to “killing two birds with one stone” in that, green supply chain reduces environmental impacts and production costs and spurs firm profitability, competitive advantage and overall economic growth.

The term green supply chain refers to the idea of integrating sustainable environmental processes into the traditional supply chain (Lerman et al., 2022) . It is one of the concepts that have attracted the attention of researchers and industry professionals in recent decades due to its potential positive contributions to environmental sustainability as well as economic development (Singh & Trivedi, 2016) . There is also a strong quest for healthy firm competitiveness in supply chain management to obtain some advantage in the entire production-to-consumption chain. Thus, attention has shifted from the rudimentary supply chain management approach to a modernized concept of GSCM.

Environmental pollution resulting from the supply chain is one of the biggest global challenges to livelihood. There has been widespread advocacy for promoting eco-friendly raw materials and products to minimize environmental damage (Yang et al., 2022) . Firms are also facing regulatory and social pressures to reduce environmental harms resulting from industrial production (Zhang et al., 2022) and thus, are committed to investments in pollution control and prevention (Huo et al., 2019) . GSCM enhances significant earnings while paying attention to environmental competence (Sugandini et al., 2020) . It encompasses the entire production chain that ensures higher returns whiles reducing the negative environmental impacts. The entire supply chain system is a multilevel system with different product specifications, manufacturers, suppliers, wholesale distributors and retailers (Sajadieh & Bolooriarabani, 2013) .

Although existing research has explored GSCM to some extent, there is a need to review the impacts of GSCM and discuss future research trends to coordinate future research efforts in the field. Given the numerous positive impacts of GSCM on both the environment and the economy, there is a need for a more in-depth analysis of the existing body of knowledge in the study area. This is very significant in establishing the current/emerging concepts and thematic areas as well as identifying research gaps to provide direction for future research. This review paper employs a bibliometric analysis approach using VOSviewer and R (bibliometrics) to analyse the documents retrieved from the scopus database.

2. Literature

Over the years, researchers in the field of management have shown a vested interest in concepts that promote profitability, environmental sustainability and development in the industry (Khanra et al., 2022) . Organisations are primarily concerned with strategies that can enhance their economic, social and environmental performance. GSCM is the first step in integrating sustainable development concepts into supply chain management in the production process (Qin, 2019) . GSCM is a process in which products or services are sourced, produced and delivered by eco-friendly processes to fulfill the stakeholders’ concerns (Ahmed et al., 2019) . The GSCM process improves efficiency and reduces production costs.

2.1. Green Supply Chain

The term green supply chain refers to the idea of integrating sustainable environmental processes into the traditional supply chain (Junaid et al., 2022) . Green supply chain is a comprehensive concept which encompasses the different stages in the production chain (Khan, 2018) . Figure 1 below is a simple model which explains these stages.

2.2. Green Purchasing

The process of manufacturing products starts with purchasing raw materials. Green purchasing refers to the activity of purchasing raw materials which can be recycled after use (Khan et al., 2022) . Firms endeavour to avoid purchasing raw materials that have adverse effects on plant and animal life. In most cases, eco-friendly raw materials are preferred (Rajaeifar et al., 2022) . The environmental concerns being raised globally puts industry professionals on the urge to consider the environmental impacts of their operations. This includes the types

Figure 1. The GSCM model. Source: Khan (2018) .

of raw materials they source to feed their production processes. One critical measure of an effective green purchasing approach is the measure of the amount of waste generated in the course of the production process (Mohammed et al., 2022) . Green purchasing has the potential of reducing waste and allowing for effective recycling/reuse whilst reducing the cost of production (Sugandini et al., 2020) .

2.3. Green Manufacturing

Green manufacturing has a positive significant impact on social, economic and environmental performance (Afum et al., 2020) . The main purpose of green manufacturing is to mitigate adverse environmental effects by adopting socially and environmentally accountable manufacturing practices that ensure the profitability of the firm. This offers a competitive advantage in the industry and also yields quality and cheaper products for consumers. Green manufacturing ensures an efficient process which improves on the operational, financial and environmental dimensions. Diana et al. (2017) highlighted the central role of manufacturing in the sustainable management of operations. Manufacturing forms the core of the process that yields the finished products for distribution to end users.

2.4. Green Distribution

Green distribution encompasses all measures taken to ensure that the final product gets to the consumer and becomes available for use with minimum wastage or environmental destruction. Green marketing strategy is the company’s strategic orientation that leads to green marketing of the finished products (Papadas et al., 2017) . The marketing strategy of the company in distribution determines the reach and eventually, the customer base. Green distribution could increase the profitability of the firm whiles protecting the interest of the environment.

2.5. Green Reverse Logistics

Green reverse logistics practices enable firms to improve their public corporate image and reduce wastage (Khan et al., 2018) . The practice of reverse logistics comprising reuse, remanufacturing, recycling, rebranding and product regeneration to produce new and usable finished products (Govindan et al., 2015) . This ensures maximum use of materials and end-products of the production chain. Reverse logistics reduce the expenses on raw materials as well as the negative impact of environmental pollution resulting from the production chain. This can be achieved by sourcing eco-friendly and reusable raw materials as part of the green supply chain mechanism.

2.6. Green Technology and Innovation in Supply Chain

Green technology and innovation refer to the development and application of sustainable practices in the production chain to ensure efficient production whiles promoting long-term environmental sustainability. This includes the promotion of new mechanisms to reduce pollution throughout the product life cycle (Mylan, 2015) . The concept of green technology is considered an effective strategy that can foster a sustainable environment and development (Danish & Ulucak, 2020) . Green Technology and the associated practices mitigate the damage to the environment and spur positive impacts in sectors such as energy and health (Zhu & Ye, 2018) . Green Technology and innovation strategies are environmentally friendly and encompass energy efficiency, health and safety concerns, recycling, as well as the promotion of renewable resources (Awan, 2019) . Innovation could be technologically or non-technologically motivated by economic or environmental considerations such as cost reduction, pollution control, waste management or the promotion of eco-friendly materials (Miranda et al., 2021) .

2.7. Impact of Green Supply Chain Management

GSCM emerged as a concept to mitigate the adverse environmental impacts resulting from the production chain. Researchers and industry players have shown interest in GSCM because of its impact on both corporate performance and the built environment. This review adopts the triple bottom line theory from existing literature which categorised the impacts under environmental, economic and social impacts (Qin, 2019) .

2.7.1. Environmental Impacts

Green supply chain has received much attention due to its inherent impacts on the environment. Theyel (2000) pointed out that GSCM could improve corporate performance and achieve business objectives through the improvement of environmental performance (Huo et al., 2019) . The ultimate aim of GSCM is to improve the environment and ensure long-term environmental sustainability to support plant and animal life (Zhu and Sarkis, 2004) . GSCM provides options to procure eco-friendly raw materials and adopt reverse logistics practices such as reuse, recycling and regeneration of waste into useable materials. This reduces the amount of waste disposed into the environment which could have dire consequences on plant and animal life. Also, green practices such as ISOI400I certification, pollution prevention and material recycling have significant positive effects on the environment (Hajmohammad et al., 2013) .

2.7.2. Economic Impacts

Existing research has shown that GSCM has a positive impact on corporate financial performance through green procurement practices (Carter et al., 2000) . The implementation of GSCM practices improves the competitive advantage of enterprises, reduced production costs, increase profitability and overall business performance (Sarkis, 2003) . This translates into economic growth, development and sustainability.

2.7.3. Social Impacts

The social impacts of GSCM are dependent on the practices employed by industry players to prevent or limit social problems resulting from their operations (Qin, 2019) . It has been argued that firms ought not to concentrate only on the economic and financial performance of their operations but also take up a social responsibility to address the social problems in society. GSCM reduces negative impacts on the environment which indirectly reduces the social problems associated with widespread environmental pollution. This eventually improves the quality of life and promotes social welfare.

2.7.4. Research Gap

Much effort has not been devoted to conducting literature reviews on GSCM since it is an evolving concept (Liu & Chang, 2017) and has not received widespread acceptance on the production front. The literature review revealed that there exist limited reviews conducted on GSCM and its impacts to provide future direction of research. More so, this review employs a bibliometric analysis approach to analyse existing literature in the study area which is still in its infancy. This review is justified by the gaps identified in the study area and will contribute to understanding the emerging concepts in the study area. It will also contribute to filling the gaps in theory and methodological direction used in research within the study area.

3. Methodology

The data was extracted from Scopus which is one of the bibliographic databases widely used by researchers in the conduct of bibliometric studies. According to Terán-Yépez et al. (2020) , Web of Science and Scopus are widely used for bibliometric analysis. The Scopus database was selected for this review because it is considered the largest database of abstracts and citations of peer-reviewed literature (Piwowar-Sulej et al., 2021) . Scopus also contains more records of published articles in so many journals (Singh et al., 2021) .

An initial search was conducted using a Boolean logic of the following keyword combination (“green supply chain management” or “green innovation” or “GSCM” or “green capability” or “green technology” and “environmental impact” or “environmental sustainability” or “green economic performance” or “sustainability” or “firm competitiveness”) which yielded 1872 documents. The search was further limited to articles in English published in journals from 2017 to 2022 which reduced the results to 785 documents. The limitation of the search to English was to enable an output that is readable to an English audience. A further limitation of the search to 5 years from 2017 to 2022 would enhance the analysis of the evolution of literature in the study area over a significant period into the past and not just a snapshot of current literature. Again, the search was narrowed to include only publications in the areas of economics, environment, social science, energy, decision science and business which yielded 652 documents for the analysis (Figure 2).

4. Results of Analysis

4.1. Main Information

Table 1 below shows the main information obtained from the analysis in VOSviewer. The review used literature publications from 2017 to 2022 for the analysis. A total of 652 documents were sourced from 279 sources (Journals, Books, etc.). The annual growth rate of publications in the study area was 18.26%, an indication of the infancy of publications in the study area since the rate of publication within the period was low.

4.2. Publication Output and Growth

The annual publications in Figure 3 revealed the development in the research field over the study period. Since 2017, there has been a gradual increase in publications on the topic per year, with most in 2022. This is a representation of the evolution of the study area publications over the period under consideration. There were 67 articles published on the topic in 2017. This number increased to 108 in 2019 reaching 155 in 2022. Researchers are interested in the study area and emerging concepts which accounts for the steady increase in publications.

To understand the trend of publications by countries, Table 2 shows the results of country production over time. Most documents were recorded from China and Brazil.

covering the green network of balls shows the current keywords being used. The middle and right rectangles show words that have been used over the period with a connection to the currently most used keywords. This gives a direction for future researchers to be guided in selecting topics with the currently researched keywords to produce relevant publications of interest (Figure 6).

Two documents are bibliographically coupled if they both cite one or more documents in the same subject of study. Figure 7 shows the bibliographical coupling of documents with the minimum citations per document set at 25 of which 131 out of 652 met the criteria.

The bibliographic coupling (sources) has 82 as the biggest connections out of 279 with the minimum number of documents and citations set to 2. Figures 8-12 are maps of the bibliographic coupling which shows the various networks that met the stated criteria.

Figure 13 below shows topical areas that have evolved over the period from 2017 to 2022. This is vital information for potential researchers to be able to select current topics in their publications. Themes in the study area have evolved into sustainability, sustainable development and waste management which are potential areas for future research.

Figure 14 below shows the emerging, niche, basic motor themes of current trends in the study area. More researchers are concentrating on environmental impact and green technology which have the potential of growth in publications.

5. Findings, Discussion and Conclusion

The review set out to enhance the knowledge base of green supply chain and the related field of the study area. Bibliometric analysis was conducted using VOSviewer and the Bibliometrix package of R. The relational technique applied four major methods: co-authorship analysis, keyword co-occurrence analysis, co-citation analysis and bibliographic coupling. These methods were conducted on 652 documents from the Scopus database. The Boolean logic for the selection of these 652 documents was “green supply chain management” or “green innovation” or “GSCM” or “green capability” or “green technology” and “environmental impact” or “environmental sustainability” or “green economic performance” or “sustainability” or “firm competitiveness”. The co-authorship analysis identified leading researchers in the network as Khan Sar, Kumar V, Li G, Sarkis J, Wang X, Jabbour CJC, Sahu AK, Sueyoshi T and Yu Z. The most strong-link countries were China, USA, Malaysia, Italy, Pakistan, UAE, Australia and Türkiye.

The keyword co-occurrence analysis shows the occurrences of keywords in the documents as, sustainable development, environmental management sustainability, supply chain management, environmental impact, environmental technology, environmental economics, environmental sustainability and environmental protection. Sustainability has been identified as the most occurred keyword since 2017. The evolution analysis of the themes in the study areas revealed the dynamic evolution and future development of green supply chain and how the constructs established backgrounds and provided a paradigm shift towards environmental sustainability and technology.

The annual scientific production indicates that the study area has received attention from researchers and has potential growth in literature production. Researchers are collaborating from the co-authorship analysis to expand their territories and create a network of publications in the study area.

The study has given an overview of currently available scientific literature on GSCM and contributions made in the research field based on authorship, institutions, journals, citations and countries. Influential authors have been identified and their collaboration with other authors. The evolution and development of the important themes in the subject area culminated in identifying meaningful clusters. Finally, the emerging and hot topical areas of the study field have been highlighted to direct and coordinate research in green supply chain.

6. Future Research Direction

The findings of the review will guide and encourage researchers to put effort into sustainability, environmental technology, waste management, environmental economics, environmental impact and green technology and provide a baseline for future research development and coordination across countries, authors and affiliating universities.
