Community Message

You have been contacted by Swinburne University of Technology to participate in an important study on Supply Chain Sustainability. Your organization has been selected from the Australian Manufacturing for your excellent practices. Therefore, your participation will provide us with extremely valuable input that will enhance the results of this study.

Supply chain management is strategic for sustainable development, which refers not only to environmental benefits, but also economic and operational advantage. It has been suggested that a firm cannot claim to be sustainable unless its supply chain operations are also sustainable. Thus, this study pretends to clarify how supply chain management can affect positively environmental and economic performance and thus provide managers with an effective implementation path for their environmental efforts. Further, as a current topical issue, this research will explore how digital technologies can contribute to more sustainable outcomes at a supply chain level.
