Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the environmentally conscious and socially responsible era of today, the convergence of supply chain management and sustainability has become a central concern for global businesses. As companies grapple with the intricacies of navigating global markets, ensuring ethical sourcing, and minimizing their ecological impact, the imperative to establish robust and accountable supply networks has never been more pressing.

The intersection of supply chain management and sustainability presents a dual landscape of challenges and opportunities in various industries. As the effects of climate change intensify and societal expectations about ethical procurement, fair labor practices, and environmental stewardship continue to increase, organizations are compelled to re-evaluate and transform their supply chain strategies. This Special Issue aims to explore the multifaceted dimensions of sustainable supply chain management, exploring innovative approaches, the best practices, and emerging trends that will shape the future of responsible business conduct.

The scope of this Special Issue is to explore the intricate dynamics and emerging challenges within supply chain management (SCM) against the backdrop of sustainability imperatives. This Special Issue seeks to advance scholarly research and practical insights into the intersection of supply chain management and sustainability, thereby addressing the growing imperative for businesses to operate in ways that are environmentally and socially responsible.

Topics of interest for publication in this Special Issue include but are not limited to the following:

  • Resilience and risk management in sustainable supply chains;
  • Circular economy and waste reduction;
  • Business process management for sustainability;
  • Pressures and incentives for sustainable supply chain management;
  • Supplier management and collaboration;
  • Omni-channel retail;
  • Ethical sourcing, fair trade initiatives, and labor practices;
  • AI in enhancing supply chain management processes;
  • Supply chain transparency and traceability;
  • Green logistics and transportation optimization;
  • Corporate social responsibility (CSR) in supply chain management;
  • Regulatory compliance and sustainable supply chain governance.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.
