Purpose –The aim of this paper is to contribute significantly to the empirical investigations related to the impact of Sustainable supply chain management (SSCM) practices on performance in Chinese firms. The paper also aims to theorize and empirically assess a comprehensive SSCM practices and performance model. The model incorporates two aspects of SSCM practices: internal and external management, and analyses the impact on corporate sustainability performance from all dimensions. Design/methodology/approach – This paper develops a conceptual model to investigate the impact of SSCM practices on the firm performance. Based on the data of 172 Chinese firms, this paper analyzes the impact of SSCM practices on firm economic performance, environmental performance and social performance for each dimension by PLS structural equation methods. Findings –The results show that firm internal SSCM practices have a positive impact on firm environmental performance and social performance. Moreover, environmental performance and social performance are positively related to economic performance. Originality/value – A comprehensive SSCM practices performance model is proposed and empirically assessed for Chinese firms. The results of this investigation support the hypotheses that SSCM practices are environmentally and socially necessary mean while do goods to business. A series of approach and implications of SSCM practices is recommended.

7.1 Conclusions and managerial implications
This paper aims to study a variety of environmental and corporate social responsibility practices and the impact on firms’ performance from all dimensions.
Based on RBV and TCT, SSCM practices should contribute to firm performance. Through the survey, we analyze the data from 172 Chinese firms, SSCM practices include the four dimensions: internal environmental management practices and social responsibility management practices, external Supplier monitor and assessment and suppliers collaboration which have different impacts on the three dimensions of firm performance: economic performance, environmental performance, and social performance.
By strengthening internal environmental management and social responsibility management, Firms can improve environmental performance and social performance; firms working closely with suppliers can promote corporate environmental performance; the continuous improvement of environmental performance and social performance will improve the economic performance ultimately. This paper reveals how SSCM practices influence firm performance. In the long run, SSCM has an important significance for the promotion of economic performance, environmental performance and social performance which constructs the competitive advantages for the firm.
