Definition Of Green Building Supply Chain

Most researchers generally believe that the green supply chain research (Campbell, & Fiske, 1959) is to integrate environmental factors in all links of the supply chain, reduce environmental pollution caused by various activities, and effectively optimize resource utilization. For the study of construction supply chain (Casadesus-Masanell et al. 2009), most scholars and experts believe that the supply chain of construction industry is aimed at satisfying the effective demand of consumers or owners for construction, with the general contractor as the core, involving the whole life cycle of construction, including project planning and financing, architectural design, construction, completion and acceptance, operation and maintenance and using process. Through the management of logistics, capital flow, knowledge flow, and information flow, the functional network structure model can reduce the total cost of the whole chain and enhance its competitiveness.

Although the concept of green building supply chain has not been uniformly defined, most experts and scholars agree that it should be based on the concept of sustainable development or life cycle perspective, starting from the affective needs of investment construction units or end-users (Cavana, 2001), taking the general contractor as the core enterprise to define (Aghion et al. 2015), integrating all kinds of internal and external resources, and considering environmental impact factors and energy resource consumption, to achieve the maximum comprehensive benefits.
