1 Building sustainable global supply chains Dr. Stephen Brammer Professor of Strategy and Associate Dean for Research, Warwick Business School Co-authors: Drs. Stefan Hoejmose and Andrew Millington, University of Bath

2 Four key questions 1.What are the main issues, drivers and motivators identified in the research? 2.What does the data suggest most firms are doing to manage these issues? What risks does such an approach entail? 3.What practices characterize cutting-edge approaches to sustainable global supply chains? 4.What conditions contribute to the attainment to sustainable global supply chains?

3 Data analyzed in our research

4 The most prominent issues

5 Sources of pressure

6 Motivations for managing global supply chains sustainably

7 Sustainable global supply chains: Common “baseline” practices

8 Shortcomings of baseline practices Un-negotiated expectations lack legitimacy Codes of conduct are static and unresponsive Third-party certification is costly Monitoring and auditing undermine trust

9 Sustainable global supply chains: Best practices

10 Conditions supporting improved supply chain practice

11 Conclusions Managing a global supply chain sustainably is a complex and multifaceted task The most common practices identified in our research provide a useful first step, but suffer from some inherent limitations More ambitious “best practices” address these limitations but require more integrated consideration of the relationship between a firm’s strategy, operations, and partnerships
