Abstract:

Background: This study is for examining the association between green logistics, energy demand, renewable energy consumptions, environmental performance and sustainable economic development in a panel of nineteen developed economies around the globe over the period from 2008 - 2017. In addition, the article expands domain of green logistics from firm level to country level and also connects national scale economic indicators with green logistical performance.

Methods: The study employs Pools OLS (ordinary least square) statistical technique to check hypothesis, while secondary data have been used, which were downloaded from the World Bank.

Results: The results reveal that the green logistics indicators have strongly positive correlation with green energy sources, FDI inflows, and Trade openness. On the other hand, greenhouse gas emissions and carbon emissions have negative correlation with green logistics. Furthermore, renewable energy is a driving factor of green logistics and supply chain operations which also promote environmental and economic sustainability.

Conclusion: This article provides the insight of the association between green logistics performance and national scale economic and environmental indicators. In addition, this research will help practitioners, senior managers and policymaker to understand the importance of renewable energy and green practices in logistical operations.

Keywords: Renewable energy; Trade openness; Greenhouse gas emissions; Green Supply chain management; Economic development
