The goal of the work is to systematically review the prevailing position of empirical research on Green supply chain management practises (GSCMP) published in high quality indexed journals over the past eleven years, from 2012 to 2022 (Scopus). Scopus was chosen for the literature search to increase openness and clarity, and stringent inclusion and exclusion criteria were used to filter all studies. Only the 25 most relevant papers were included in this review; those that weren't were discarded. PRISMA 2009 is used for the intergration and removal process. The empirical findings of the chosen articles are used to propose a conceptual model of GSCMP implementation. Based on the findings, it is clear that most of the literature is focused on manufacturing companies and that supply chain networks are largely ignored in favour of individual practises, techniques, procurement methods, and initiatives that aim to reduce environmental impact. The findings of this study also show that green initiatives have a significant impact on the environmental, social, financial, and operational results of businesses. This research concludes that contemporary businesses must think about how their activities affect the environment, and that to mitigate their negative effects, they must prioritise supply chain networks and adopt environmentally friendly business practices.
