The purpose of this research is to examine the integration of green supply chain management practices into the construction industry of Iraq. The objective of this study is to ascertain the fundamental practices that facilitate the successful implementation of green supply chain integration within the construction sector, by evaluating their influence on the incorporation process. Quantitative data analysis was conducted using a standardized questionnaire that was distributed to managers at Iraqi industrial enterprises who were responsible for supply chain, procurement, inventory, and warehouse management. The study examined six primary practises within the realm of green supply chain management: local sourcing, sustainable materials, supplier collaboration, green logistics, reverse logistics, and technology integration. The findings indicate a growing acceptance among Iraqi construction enterprises of green supply chain practices, reflecting a proactive shift towards environmental conservation and commercial viability. However, this study acknowledges its inherent constraints. The scope of this study is restricted to the construction business in Iraq and may not be generalizable to other industries or geographical areas. The utilization of survey data in which respondents self-report introduces potential biases. This study contributes to the existing body of knowledge on the integration of green supply chain practices into the construction sector in Iraq. The research highlights the significance of integrating environmentally conscious initiatives as a means to foster sustainability. Iraqi construction companies have the potential to exert a substantial influence on the country's transition toward a more environmentally conscious future. This can be achieved through the promotion of collaborative efforts, the use of sustainable materials, and the utilization of advanced technologies.
