Sustainable Supply Chain Management (SSCM)

We define Sustainable Supply Chain Management (SSCM) as a set of managerial practices that include all of the following:

  • Environmental impact as an imperative
  • Consideration of all stages across the entire value chain for each product and
  • A multi-disciplinary perspective, encompassing the entire product life-cycle.

This definition implies a few broad themes in our perspective on environmental sustainability. First, firms must view the environmental impact of their activities as an integral part of decision-making, rather than as a constraint imposed by government regulation or social pressure, or as a fad to exploit by appearing to be “green”. Second, firms must pay attention to environmental impact across the entire value chain, including those of suppliers, distributors, partners, and customers. Third, firms’ view of sustainability must transcend a narrow functional perspective and encompass a broader view that integrates issues, problems, and solutions across functional boundaries.

In keeping with this definition, our review of the literature on SSCM adopts a firm perspective, rather than a societal or policy-makers perspective, and focuses on organizational decisions related to the entire product life-cycle that involves the design, production, distribution, consumer use, post-use recovery, and reuse. We do not limit ourselves to literature in any one academic discipline; rather, we focus on interactions across functional areas including corporate strategy, product design, production and inventory management, marketing and distribution, and, regulatory compliance.
