Description & Coverage
Description:

The formidable challenge of harmonizing economic imperatives with ecological responsibility in supply chain operations only increases with added complexity. In an era where global commerce is interwoven with environmental concerns, Sustainable Supply Chain Management for Environmental Responsibility is the pivotal resource that addresses the pervasive challenge of implementing Sustainable Supply Chain Management (SSCM). It navigates the intricate terrain of SSCM, offering an authoritative exploration of its key elements, drivers, and challenges.

This book dissects the foundational principles of SSCM, revealing its relevance and significance in fostering environmental stewardship. Readers embark on a journey through the core elements of SSCM, from green procurement and sustainable production to optimizing logistics through technology-driven solutions. The narrative is grounded in academic rigor, enriched with case studies of companies that have triumphantly embraced SSCM, showcasing tangible benefits such as cost reduction, enhanced brand reputation, and heightened customer loyalty.

Anchored in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations, this publication underscores the theoretical underpinnings of SSCM and furnishes practical insights to overcome the challenges in implementation. It delineates strategies to weave sustainability into supply chain operations, fostering a convergence between ecological responsibility and organizational objectives. Through an exploration of metrics, measurement, and stakeholder management, the book equips practitioners, students, and sustainability professionals with the tools to navigate the evolving terrain of responsible supply chain practices.

From the macrocosm of government influence to the microcosm of industry-specific approaches, the book transcends theoretical discourse to offer tangible guidance for diverse stakeholders. It unfolds a future-oriented perspective, delving into circular economy paradigms, smart supply chain management, and the ethical considerations underpinning environmental responsibility. Readers are empowered to transcend barriers, build resilient supply chains, and contribute to a sustainable future. This book is ideal for managers, academics, and students and unfolds environmental responsibility within the intricate fabric of supply chain operations.
