The Effect of Supply Chain Collaboration Efforts on Environmental Performance in the Manufacturing Industry
Firms compete as part of a supply chain against other supply chains in today’s highly competitive market economy to better adapt to market fluctuations. Collaboration is a crucial necessity for integrating activities in order to meet the mutual goals of all parties in a supply chain, given the nature of interdependence between supply chain participants. The study aims to examine the effect of supply chain collaboration dimensions on environmental performance as well as the degree to which manufacturing firms have implemented supply chain collaboration. The study uses a quantitative research approach to analyze data from 45 respondents who work in management roles at various manufacturing companies in Jordan. The findings of regression analysis demonstrate that four supply chain collaboration dimensions, namely information sharing, resource sharing, collaborative communication, and joint knowledge, are all positive and significant. For managers, researchers, and academics, the study presents policy implications from both theoretical and practical perspectives.
