Sustainability in Supply Chain Management Casebook: Applications in SCM

Book description

This reference is a comprehensive collection of original case studies on building sustainability into the supply chain. An ideal resource for graduate-level and executive courses in sustainability, operations management, and supply chain/logistics, The Sustainability in Supply Chain Management Casebook covers a wide spectrum of social, economic and environmental issues; as well as new areas such as reverse logistics and closed-loop supply chains. Steven Leon covers these and other specific topics: strategy, implementation, decision making, transportation, supplier relationships, collaboration, lean and continuous improvement, finance and economics, worker safety and rights, procurement, production, delivery, packaging, logistics, and global supply chains. He frames these case studies with authoritative introductory material, and offers corresponding teaching notes and Q and A sections that make this an even more useful instructional resource.
