The Green Supply Chain (GSC) is a key element of an enterprise-wide green management strategy. A GSC can help agencies comply with new federal guidelines while achieving a wide range of economic, social, national security, and environmental goals. This study aims to investigate the current green level of foundry industry in and around a specific city. The approach of the present research includes a literature review, in depth interviews and questionnaire surveys. The survey questionnaire was designed with 16 items using literature. This project evaluates the environmental assessment of small scale foundries to find the critical factors of green supply chain management and their relation to the organizational performance.
