Innovative Solutions for Sustainable Supply Chains Excerpt :

This book presents the latest tools, techniques, and solutions that decision makers use to overcome the challenges faced by their sustainable supply chains. Given the ever increasing significance of socio-economic and environmental factors, the management of sustainable supply chains has become a complex and dynamic task. Multiple and conflicting objectives of stakeholders including suppliers, manufacturers, service providers, and retailers add to the complexity of decisions that modern day managers of supply chains face. With the unprecedented technological developments and innovations at hand, sustainability can be maximized for all the activities of a supply chain including: service concept and product design, material sourcing and procurement, manufacturing processes, delivery of the final product, and end-of-life management of the product. Consequently, the sustainable supply chains' problems require a systematic and integrated approach. Modeling and simulation, in general, as well as system dynamics and agent-based modeling, in particular, have the capabilities to deal with the complexity of sustainable supply chain related problems. This book will appeal to professionals and researchers in the field.

Faced with the externalpressures of globalization and competition, logistics optimizesprocesses and reduces production and delivery cycles. The use of Sustainable Supply Chain Management (SuSCM) is nowincreasingly at the center of thought, due to the numerous factorsfavoring its implementation: requests from various stakeholders,governmental pressures (decrees, laws, regulations, etc.),environmental pressures (pollution, disappearance of fuel fossils,etc.) and societal pressures (reputation/image, protection, etc.).However, there are still obstacles to the implementation of SuSCM,including significant costs, the complexity of coordination and thelack of communication within the whole supply chain.

Green Practices and Strategies in Supply Chain Management Excerpt :

We look at green supply chain management from the vantage point of the triple bottom line: environmental, economic, and social. There are many sustainability decisions that can be made on which we have an incredible impact. Usually, managers have the opportunity to make decisions in five areas of the supply chain: plan, source, make, deliver, and return. Nowadays, consumers care more about where and how the products are produced and delivered, what they are made of, and who made them. Regulatory bodies are continuously creating pressure on firms to adopt eco-friendly practices in their businesses for better environmental sustainability. As a result, firms have just two choices: to adopt green and/or eco-friendly practices in their supply chain operations to fulfill their customers' and regulatory bodies' requirement or not to adopt green practices and lose their business position and potential customers.
