A conceptual framework for the design and management of sustainable supply chains

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference paper

Abstract

Many organisations are realising the growing importance of sustainability in today’s business lexicon and the need to incorporate a supply chain approach, since the implementation of sustainability extends beyond organisational boundaries and involves multiple parties and various considerations. Despite this need, the extant literature on sustainable supply chain management focuses predominantly on a single dimension in isolation and lacks practical integrated frameworks in which all three dimensions of sustainability (i.e. environmental, social and economic dimensions) can be discerned. To address this gap, we propose a more holistic framework which incorporates performance indicators for all three dimensions that can be used as a tool for the development and
management of sustainable supply chains. This paper provides significant theoretical contribution and implications for supply chain management.
