Research limitations/implications (if applicable): This paper is a conceptual paper and lacks empirical testing which needs to performed in future research through exploratory studies.

Practical implications (if applicable): This framework will aid practitioners in taking environmental conscious decisions when making international sourcing decisions.

What is original/value of paper: This paper addresses the little developed area of environmental sustainability in international sourcing
