Research on Green Supply Chain Management and Enterprise Performance in Taiwan’s Electronics Industry
Keywords:Green supply chain, Carbon management strategy, Electronics industry
AbstractThe increase in greenhouse gases (GHG) in the atmosphere has led to global warming. Climate change is an international environmental issue. Therefore, companies should pay more attention to carbon management strategies in their supply chains. It also requires major suppliers to disclose their greenhouse gas emissions and climate change strategies through CDP. These suppliers include some large electronics manufacturers in Taiwan. The focus of this research is to understand the carbon management strategy in the green supply chain of Taiwan's electronics industry. Based on the collected strategies, a questionnaire was compiled and mailed to listed electronics companies in Taiwan to understand how Taiwanese electronics companies deal with carbon management in their supply chains. In this study, the collected data were analyzed and processed through descriptive statistical analysis, one-way analysis of variance, Pearson product difference correlation, and multiple stepwise regression analysis. And draw the following conclusion: Director of Electronics Industry- The views on overall green supply chain management and overall company performance are in the middle and high levels, there are significant differences in "marriage", "gender", "age", "education" and "work experience", there is a positive correlation between all aspects, and there are significant differences, there is a significant correlation between the two. And has the predictive ability. The results of this study also indicate that the most important strategies for large electronics companies to manage their supply chain carbon risks are "green product design," "material replacement," "energy efficiency," and "reducing packaging and reusability." And these companies have already begun to implement these carbon management strategies. Finally, based on the research process and conclusions, specific suggestions are made to provide references for Taiwan’s electronics-related industries and future researchers.
