Antecedents of low carbon emissions supply chains

A low-carbon economy is the pressing need of the hour. Despite several efforts taken by the government and large corporations, there is still research to be conducted exploring the role of top management commitment in translating external pressures into responses that help to build low-carbon emissions in supply chains. The results of this paper suggest that coercive pressures and mimetic pressures under the mediating effect of top management commitment have a significant influence on organizational response to low-carbon emissions. The authors note that supply base complexity has moderating effects on the link between top management commitment and organizational response towards low-carbon emissions.
