Abstract

Globally, every organization is focusing on minimizing the usage of scarce resources in production. The authors have used resource dependence theory (RDT) as the theoretical lens to develop the foundation of the chapter. RDT suggests that firms within the supply chain network should coordinate and collaborate to achieve superior performance. Under RDT, the most important assumption is that firms cannot be fully independent with regards to strategically critical resources for survival. The purpose of this chapter is to explain the contextual relationships between collaboration, coordination, cooperation, and innovative green procurement practices. Here, interpretive structural modeling (ISM) technique has been used to develop the SSIM matrix with the assistance from five experts based in the South African steel and engineering sectors. The ISM model depicts the contextual interrelationships that may help supply chain managers in quality decision making. The chapter concludes with managerial implications and directions of future research.
