This paper describes case studies on green supply chain management (GSCM) of three companies based in the Yangtze River delta of China. After clarifying major supply chain relationships of each company, we identified their internal and external GSCM practices. The corresponding changes of environmental and economic performances are summarized quantitatively or in a narrative manner. The case studies confirm that the multinational and foreign-funded companies have more active GSCM practices than the domestic one. Although the current mandatory policies are effective in enhancing company’s environmental management in China, market actor-driven model seems more sustainable for the diffusion of GSCM practices.
