Abstract: Drawing upon Resource-Based View, this study investigates how firms' strategic orientations - environmental orientation (EVO), entrepreneurial orientation (ETO) and market orientation (MO) - impact green supply chain management practices (GSCMP) and firm financial performance (FFP). The results of a survey of 171 firms suggest that EVO and ETO are antecedents of GSCMP which is positively related to FFP, while MO negatively moderates the effect of GSCMP on FFP. More specifically, the positive relationship between EVO and FFP is fully mediated by GSCMP while the positive relationship between ETO and FFP is only partially mediated by it. Implications and suggestions for future research are also provided.
