JABBOUR, Ana Beatriz Lopes de Sousa. Evidences of the relationship between the environmental management evolution and the adoption of green supply chain management practices in the Brazilian electronics sector. Rev. Adm. (São Paulo) [online]. 2014, vol.49, n.3, pp.606-616. ISSN 0080-2107.

The objective of this research is to examine if the environmental management evolution is positively related towards the adoption of green supply chain management practices (GSCM) by companies in the electronics sector in Brazil. To reach this objective, a quantitative research was conducted by survey with 100 companies in the electronics sector in Brazil. The collected data were processed using descriptive statistics, Exploratory Factor Analysis and Structural Equation Modeling. The most important results are: in the sample, GSCM practices to the recovery of investment, as the resale of scrap and other waste materials, and the adequacy with legislation and auditing, obtained high scores; and research hypothesis (H1) was confirmed and considered statistically valid, indicating that, in fact, the evolution of environmental management influences the adoption of GSCM practices.
