Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this research was to assess green innovation as a mediating variable in the effect of green supply chain management on firm performance.

The sample collected by using purposive sampling method obtained 488 companies. The data were tested using STATA 16.

Green innovation mediated the relationship between green supply chain management and firm performance. Research limitations/implications: The limitation of this research was using companies listed on the PROPER program, so it needed to be studied by applying other companies. Besides, it only implemented green innovation, green supply chain management, and firm performance. Future studies can apply other green-related aspects and performances.

Companies that achieve green supply chain management will have an impact on increasing green innovation and firm performance.
