Abstract: Green Supply Chain Management (GSCM) finds its extensive application in power industry, and has the potential to deliver cleaner energy, coupled with economic gains for the practicing organization. The research study is focused on the power companies of Punjab (India) to examine the deployment of green practices in the implementation of GSCM. This study presents one of the earliest efforts to undertake a survey on the subject of GSCM implementation in Indian power companies. Six factors considered for examining the status of GSCM in power industry. The result of study shows that the Green Organizational Culture and Government Regulations are the most important factors in propagating GSCM culture in the power companies and Green Energy Promotion and Green Awareness are the least important factors
