This study looks at the environmental impact of humanitarian development logistics from the purchasing and supply management (PSM) perspective. It delves into conventional and sector-specific responsibilities of PSM function and its collaborations with other humanitarian actors to explore how it can lead to more environmentally sustainable logistics. Building upon a theoretical framework and the literature of green supply chain management, a greening framework is proposed and implemented to the case of male condoms procured by UNFPA using collaborative management research. The results identify contingent humanitarian factors and how they can facilitate or hinder greening.
