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?
Motivations for managing global supply chains sustainably
Conditions supporting improved supply chain practice
Sustainable global supply chains: Common baseline practices
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
