Assistance to manufacturers having a successful green supply chain is an incentive for this study. Results of this study shed the light on the matter that activities based on green supply chain management approach and external driving factors can affect the efficiency of whole of the supply chain. This means that Industrialists’ activities must be in accordance with the principles of environmental protection and they should consider external pressures in order to remain competitive in business world. Besides, results show that environmental regulations, green purchasing and green design are the sub-components that can affect the entire system.
