Handbook on the Sustainable Supply Chain

Research Handbooks in Business and Management series

Edited by Joseph Sarkis, Foisie Business School, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, US

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.

‘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!’
– Robert D. Klassen, Western University, Canada
