Abstract: Provided that green supply chain management (GSCM) practices that integrate ecological thinking have been emphasized by increasing works of research, the impacts that may be posed by these practices on the environmental sustainability of manufacturing companies are not unexpected. Nevertheless, GSCM is capable of improving the performance of manufacturing firms in various aspects. Pertaining to this, this research aims to explore the application of GSCM practices and the effects they pose on organizational performance. To be specific, in this study, the results of the application of a set of internal and external GSCM practices on various aspects of organizational performance were investigated. Furthermore, according to the data collected, which were from 121 food, pharmaceuticals survey questionnaires, and chemical manufacturing companies in Palestine, statistical analyses were conducted. Moreover, partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM) was utilized for the assessment of the hypotheses associated with the application of the internal and external GSCM practices and organizational performance. However, the findings of this research will be important specifically for the manufacturing organizations which aim for the enhancement of their organizational performance.
