Defining Next Generation Supply Chain Sustainability
The importance of understanding supply chain sustainability is being realized by increasingly more people, including corporate managers, investors, policy makers, customers and other stakeholders. A lot of practitioners and academic researchers have addressed this issue in past few years. However, most of their studies lack systematic thinking and are not quantifiable. Thus, a systematic and quantifiable model which incorporates economic, environmental and social factors is needed. In our study, a systematic and quantifiable risk assessment model based on the concept of “Triple Bottom Line” is developed in order to solve supply chain sustainability problem from risk assessment perspective.
