Review:

There is a growing need to understand Asia specific initiatives for the greening of supply chains. Greening the Supply Chains helps to fill this void by providing comprehensive insights into the greening of supply chains from the perspective of Asian companies...Rao has a lucid writing style and explains research terminology in layman’s terms to cater to audience with no prior knowledge of the supply chain.... This book serve as a valuable resource for managers, academicians, policy makers and students who are interested in a good review of greening concepts and greening the initiatives pursued by Asian companies.

(IIMB Management Review)

The book focuses on the concept of reduce, reuse and recycle...Although the cases given in the book are from Asia, the relevance of the book is equally important to all the managers irrespective of their geographical region of operation.... The book is a must read for the present and future generation managers.

(Management and Labour Studies)

Purba Halady Rao’s book, belongs to a different category. It assumes, at the outset, that the development trajectory is rooted in the idea that big-is-inevitable (as against small-is-beautiful) and takes the argument further to demonstrate that it need not inevitable be environmentally disastrous.... Greening the Supply Chain should certainly be considered recommended reading for students of management as well as activists in the area of environment protection.

(The New Indian Express)

The presentation is lucid and will motivate managers of companies to acquire ISO 14001 certification and also develop in-house environmental management systems suited to their needs. This book will be useful to management students and others interested in the corporate social responsibility.

(The Hindu)

In this book, Purba Halady Rao details how a company can help its supply chain to adopt green, sustainable practices ... the book is peppered with many interesting examples... this is a nicely written book, easy to read with many ideas for those with a green heart.

(Civil Society)

Greening the Supply Chain: A Guide to Asian Managers is timely as it touches the economic and emotional chord of Asian entrepreneurs and managers....it attempts to explain with concrete examples, how some of the business houses and enterprises have been able to make a positive contribution towards protecting the environment to the extent possible. These innovations and practices could be an eye-opener for many Asian managers to follow suit and become responsible corporate citizens.
