This project is a continuation of a project (Process 2010/11553-2) supported by FAPESP during the years 2010-2012 and is intended to request a "Bolsa de Pesquisa no Exterior". Its main goal is to identify the relation between the adoptions of the external practices of green supply chain management (GSCM) and environmental performance of companies located in Brazil and ISO 14001 certified. Additionally, another goal of this research is to investigate how such a relationship occurs, ie, to explore how large companies have understood and dealt with the possible synergy between external GSCM practices and environmental performance. To achieve these goals, there will be two phases of research: (a) survey, using the technique of Structural Equation Modeling (through SmartPLS) and (b) a multiple case study, making use of data triangulation (interviews, direct observation and document analysis) with a qualitative analysis. This project is justified to the extent that the relationship between GSCM and environmental performance of companies has been widely discussed in the context of international research, however, in Brazil, the scientific gap still remains. It is believed that the differential of this project is to propose two-phase research, highlighting the qualitative phase, because the available research literature on the subject are predominantly quantitative. The expected contributions of this research: (a) make comparative analyzes between the Brazilian and other countries already surveyed (through the analysis of published articles) on the relationship between external GSCM practices and environmental performance, with considerations on the Brazilian perspective (b) understand how large companies identify opportunities to improve environmental performance by adopting external GSCM practices and how they deal with this relationship, (c) considering the previous results, propose actions as Brazilian companies may seek superior environmental performance against the adoption of external GSCM practices, outlining the external GSCM practices most relevant, (d) discuss GSCM front of Brazil's environmental regulatory changes, such as the National Policy on Solid Waste and (e) dissemination of knowledge derived from research by preparing and submitting papers to journals indexed to national databases (SciELO) and international (Scopus and/or Web of Science) and the publication of articles on sites such as FAPESP, UNESP, INMETRO, ABNT, CIESP, for the overflow of academic knowledge to the business world.
