Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Sustainability is a key factor for businesses that want to gain a competitive edge or operate in industries that are sensitive to environmental or social issues. To achieve sustainable supply chains, organizations need to collect data, share information, and generate knowledge for decision making. This is particularly vital for measuring and managing the social and environmental performance of suppliers and entire supply chains. Moreover, the growing demand for certified sustainable products and services requires reliable methods for assessing and managing sustainability performance.

In this context, sustainability and technology are closely intertwined. Digital technology can enhance the sustainability of supply chains by providing a more comprehensive and real-time view of their operations and by enabling informed decisions and quick responses to changes in demand and supply.

Industry 4.0 technology can help organizations achieve these goals by offering real-time data, facilitating communication and collaboration, and streamlining processes. Digitization also allows organizations to better track and manage the life cycle of their products, from raw materials to end-of-life, thus reducing their environmental impact and promoting sustainability.

The aim of this Special Issue is to gather papers that address the measurement and management of Sustainable Supply Chains (SSCs), including case studies, papers that present methodological frameworks, and empirical research that has been conducted in any industrial sector that applies to sustainable supply chains.
