Abstract:

Background: Information technology (IT) resources can play an important role in helping firms overcome the environmental issues they face by facilitating green supply chain management. This study examines the relationship between IT resources, specifically IT infrastructure resources, IT human resources and IT relationship resources, and the environmental performance of textile firms. Further, the study examines the mediating role of green supply chain integration on this relationship.

Methods: The study collected data from 512 executives working in the textile sector in the Punjab province of Pakistan, where green supply chain integration is being practiced. Smart PLS has been used for estimation results.

Results: The results of the study show that IT resources in the form of IT infrastructure resources, IT human resources and IT relationship resources have a significant association with the environmental performance of firms. Likewise, structural equation modeling (SEM) confirms that green supply chain integration mediates this relationship. Conclusions: The results of the study demonstrate that the improvement of IT resources can help companies achieve their environmental performance targets. Likewise, the results also suggest that companies should work on achieving green supply chain integration as it can improve their environmental performance.
