In the modern era, the specialists working in the supply chain arenas are engulfed with enormous amounts of data, which has made them think out of the box and probe more into the sources of the data and techniques of analyzing and organizing the unstructured data. The new bud scholars and professionals have endorsed big Data Analytics (BDA) lately as a decisive green supply chain management facilitator. Research in this particular area is still to be explored to the fullest. The findings of the research are still in the introductory stages. Our study comprises an organized literature review of 42 significant papers published in the previous 18 years, which performs thorough reasoning and outlines three types of GSCM field: green product innovation, reverse logistics, and green procurement. The study presents the scope of BDA in these respective areas of GSCM. The study helps to portray the extent of usage of BDA tools in distinct GSCM fields. The literature review also sheds light on certain gaps in the research work. It caters to the directions for future work in the dedicated field.
