Abstract

This research sought to investigate the impact of environmental training on suppliers' environmental orientation and green logistics management practices. A positivist world view was adopted to answer the question regarding the relationship between variables, thus making this a deductive study. A quantitative approach was followed in the study, which is in line with the selected paradigm. Questionnaires were used to collect data from the study population ie manufacturing, agricultural or agribusiness, mining or extraction, and logistics/transportation firms in Ghana. The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) database was used to determine the size of the target population. The GRA database contains reliable and accurate data on approximately 1179 registered tax-paying enterprises in Ghana, including the industry type, address, and contact numbers. A sample size of 300 firms was selected from a total of 1178 respondents. The findings from hypothesis H4 reinforce the existing literature's narrative regarding the positive connection between supplier environmental orientation and green logistics management practices. The study's focus on supply chain sustainability aligns with the recognized importance of environmentally conscious suppliers in realizing effective green logistics practices.
