Abstract

Through globalization and the Earth’s natural processes, local environmental problems have transformed into international pollution issues. In order to solve these pollution problems, EM and green supply chain management (GSCM) have been widely adopted by enterprises with the aim of reducing pollution and evaluating environmental performance [1-3]. Environmental protection and performance have become two of the world’s most important priorities in order to attain sustainable development [4] Over the previous decade, EM has moved away from a regulatory-based approach to one focusing on continuous development. The KM has also rapidly developed over the last decade. A review of the literature shows that KM was fi rst introduced in theoretical research and has since been developed for application in the identifi cation and solving of a variety of problems. The EKM is also defi ned as a system to connect data, analysis and people which presents an opportunity to formalize industrial ecology in a business setting [5] It is also clear from the literature review that KM and EM have both been studied for many years; however, the key aspect of successful EM is effective KM which provides employees at all levels of an organization with a computerized and systemized EKM system enabling staff to gain environmental awareness and make environmentally responsible business decisions.
