This paper aims to investigate the relationship between green supply chain management (GSCM) practices and performance (environmental, economic and organisational) within the construction sector in Jordan. Based on the literature review, the survey designed included 46 key items. Data was collected from 133 managers in the construction sector. Multiple regression analysis was undertaken to test the study hypotheses. The analysis showed mixed results, green construction and investment recovery was supported in three hypotheses; internal environmental management was supported only with organisational performance. The practical implications of the findings include creating more effort to attaining benefits from the world trade organisation (WTO) initiatives to establish long-term relationships with foreign customers to learn and enhance green practices in Jordan’s construction sector. This work is one of few studies that investigates GSCM practices in the construction sector of a developing country.
