Supply chain management has long been a feature of industry and commerce but, with increasing demands from consumers, producers are spending more time and money investing in ways to make supply chains more sustainable. This exemplary Handbook provides readers with a comprehensive overview of current research on sustainable supply chain management.

Multi-disciplinary in scope, the Handbook includes contributions from over 70 expert authors from a variety of areas including management, engineering, accounting, policy studies, innovation, and marketing. Chapters analyze the three core areas of sustainable supply chain management: environmental, economic, and social. The Handbook explores broad themes such as globalization and general organization strategies as well as examining more specific topics including particular industries, social and regulatory dimensions, and technological advances.

Scholars and advanced business and management students will greatly benefit from the depth of analysis in this Handbook as well as the suggestions for directions for future research and practice. Written in an accessible style, it is also ideal for practitioners and government agencies seeking solutions to practical issues regarding sustainable supply chain management.
Critical Acclaim
‘Wide-ranging in scope, this book enables key experts from around the world to update many established areas and explore exciting new directions. In many chapters, multiple theories are integrated to better structure our field’s current thinking: for example, on such topics as the diffusion of sustainable supply chain practices and the measurement of sustainable performance. Just as important, leading researchers explore the intersection of supply chain management with such fast-evolving topics as strategic ambidexterity, social networks, base-of-the-pyramid, and social enterprises. Overall, an excellent resource for both scholars and advanced students!’
