Abstract [en]

Due to the increasing environmental problems in recent years, there are more and more “green” ideas that have been put forward and implemented. Green logistics emerged as a new concept to focus on reducing the pollution of the environment and decreasing the resource consumption which differ from traditional logistics (McKinnon et al., 2012).This thesis aims to identify the demands and challenges of supermarkets to implement green logistics both in China and Sweden, and find out how to improve it through the case study of ICA MAXI and JIAJIAYUE. This study has identified the reasons to cause the differences about the implementation between two countries and found out some approaches to implement green logistics better in China and Sweden respectively. The major method used in this thesis is the qualitative research method by carrying out the interview with the managers in two case companies. The study has found out that both two supermarkets implement green logistics in their daily work, however, the Swedish supermarket does better than the Chinese one in some respects. Finally, the authors propose some suggestions to the two supermarkets for improving the implementation of green logistics.
