By developing a competitive advantage, environmentally and socially friendly supply chain practices enable businesses to achieve economic sustainability. Although issues related to extended producer responsibility (EPR) also put additional pressure on businesses to develop green policies, plastic recycling is a legal requirement and can bring benefits to the environment, social, health and safety. In order to promote a better understanding of the importance of supply chain management performance categories and metrics across its supply chain, we developed a methodological framework for small and micro scale plastic processors. Performance metrics play an important role in setting plastic green supply chain management framework, evaluating performance, and identifying future course of action. The proposed framework for the plastic green supply chain (PGSCMF) outlines the taxonomy and implementation of green supply chain practices in real business case studies. The framework will act as a flexible reference tool for managers in the plastics companies of small and micro scale to bring greater continuity to undertake the necessary improvements at a very local and specific level.
