As environmental issues are continually and rapidly emerging as one of the most crucial topics in strategic manufacturing decision making, the formulation of green performance management systems is very important. This research seeks to introduce and explore green performance measurement frameworks that exist in various real-world case studies that are found in literature. The study yielded a set of four taxonomic performance measurement systems that are applicable in specific contexts of manufacturing supply chain strategies. Moreover, specific green performance metrics are provided in respect of the indentified green manufacturing strategies. Implications of the application of each performance management system on existing manufacturing policies are evaluated, giving practical managerial insights. The study forms an essential framework for the decision maker to rapidly develop a suitable performance system in a green manufacturing environment, within a reasonable time frame.
