A special issue of Sustainability (ISSN 2071-1050).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 December 2016)
Growing societal and governmental pressure has challenged businesses to focus on the environmental and efficient conservation of resources during all operations of the supply chain. Business leaders today are very interested in continuously running their supply chains through a sustainable supply chain management. The challenges in being sustainable in supply chain management include building, redesigning and reconfiguring the effective and efficient supply chain with the capabilities of robustness, resilience, flexibility, agility, and responsiveness.
They should consider cost, tax laws, skills, material availability, new market entry, and other organizational operations and resources. More attention is needed to optimize the supply chain processes, from product design, raw material selection, and production, to delivering, customer service, and end-of-life product management. Supply chain optimization also enables business leaders to make their operations more flexible, responsive, and efficient, based on an organization’s operations, resources, and other capabilities.
From this point of view, authors are invited to submit their works regarding innovative methodologies and models for improving and maintaining sustainability in supply chain management. Research related to the keyword below is welcomed.
