En las últimas décadas se observa en la literatura un aumento en la publicación de artículos que analizan y discuten cuestiones medioambientales, sin embargo, a raíz de la problemática del calentamiento global diversos organismos gubernamentales endurecieron las reglas y políticas medioambientales, a tal grado que están obligando a las empresas, particularmente a las que integran la industria automotriz, a adoptar medidas para disminuir la contaminación de su cadena de suministro, ya que es una de las industrias que más contaminación genera a nivel global. Así, el objetivo de este estudio es aportar evidencia empírica que contribuya a llenar el vacío existente en la actual literatura, y analizar la relación existente entre la gestión de la cadena de suministro verde y el rendimiento empresarial, a través de una investigación cuantitativa, explicativa y correlacional, mediante la aplicación de modelos de ecuaciones estructurales. Los resultados obtenidos muestran que la gestión de la cadena de suministro verde está correlacionada en un 47,6% con en el rendimiento empresarial, lo cual permite concluir que la cadena de suministro verde no solamente mejora la sustentabilidad medioambiental, sino que también incrementa el rendimiento empresarial de las empresas de la industria automotriz.
