The purpose of this study was to empirically establish the relationship between green sourcing and environmental sustainability in the Kampala district. The study employed a cross-sectional design. The study also used quantitative approaches in collecting and analyzing the data both descriptively and inferentially. The study population was 675 manufacturing entities. Using the purposive sampling technique, the study took a sample of 248. Data were obtained from 186 usable questionnaires. The researcher applied Statistical Package for Social Scientists (SPSS) to test all four hypotheses. The results are presented in terms of descriptive statistics and inferential statistics in terms of correlation analysis, simple regression and multiple regression analysis models. Results indicate that Pearson’s correlation results indicate a relatively moderate, positive and significant association between Green Sourcing and Environmental Sustainability in Kampala industries (r= 0.558, sig .000, p< .01) ; Multiple regression results indicated that Green sourcing (β = 0.387) was found to significantly predict Environmental Sustainability in Kampala industries. Green sourcing has a significant effect on Environmental Sustainability in Kampala industries. The study recommended that National Environment Management Authority (NEMA) takes deliberate steps to try to step adherence to green sourcing by Manufacturing by empowering the enforcement department.
