This chapter explores sustainable value chains with a focus on sustainable supply chain failures in developed and developing economies. Sustainable supply chains are effective environmentally friendly systems that contribute to the delivery of products and services from suppliers to customers/clients, and there are several challenges that contribute to sustainable supply chain failures such as complexity of supply chains, unfair trade practices, lack of transparency, unfair labor practices, product sustainability, and dependence on multiple suppliers.
