About this book

Introduction

This book connects business sustainability to supply network-based value creation and enhancement, and tests a number of key propositions in complex supply networks to identify key challenges. Examining practical issues such as carbon trading, green product development, worker safety, child labour and relations with local communities, Business Value and Sustainability advances the understanding of sustainability in supply network management. In presenting a supply management perspective including a tighter control of the supply base and the development of supplier capability through collaboration with NGOs, the authors contribute to both the theoretical advancement and practical development of this field. The book aims to raise the sustainability standards of businesses in an increasingly complex and inter- and intra-connected global supply network.
