The research method used for this study include experimental research, questionnaires, etc. the researcher administered twenty (20) questionnaires to specific departments within the organization where information where gathered for a successful completion of these project. This research illuminates the debate by empirically evaluating the relationship between environmental management system (EMS) and green supply chain management (GSCM) practices. In sum, this research reveals that organizations that adopt environmental management systems EMSs more frequently implement green supply chain management (GSCM) practices, regardless of how long the EMS has been in place. These results suggest that EMSs and green supply chain management (GSCM) may complement each other, and that EMS adopters have a stronger probability of improving the environment not just within their organizational boundaries, but throughout their network of buyers and suppliers. Amidst several recommendations, the researcher finally recommended that, the green supply chain management and environmental management efforts in national disaster management organization (NADMO) should be appreciated and there should be systems for recognition and appreciation of implementation of these systems in order to motivate the staff to work effectively.
