Description

Sustainable Procurement is an emerging concept in supply chain and operations management. Manufacturing industries have made improvements in moving from cost-based to quality-based, and customer-focused supply chain management strategies. This is becoming an integrated component in the supply chain system, with players becoming aware of the regulations and needs of the customer. It is imperative for production firms to look at the procurement activity as one of the strategic enablers for sustaining the business in the competitive global environment. This book will provide industries with an understanding of the concepts related to sustainable procurement policies and its implementation.

  • Provides decision and theory development models in sustainable procurement supply chains
  • Includes contributions in all three major analytics: descriptive, predictive, and perspectives in the context of sustainable procurement supply chain
  • Discusses new business models with suppliers and opportunities for co-branding
  • Covers how to develop new tools to measure and allocate the gains from sustainable practices among stakeholders
  • Analyses the science of translating data into meaningful and actionable insights
