Abstract

This study reviews the existing approaches and frameworks on sustainable supply chain management (SSCM). Theories from other fields including quality management, supply chain management, and management (stakeholder theory and institutional theory) are explored to identify their contribution to theory development in SSCM. Drawing upon these theories an organizational framework for SSCM is developed with an integrated theoretical perspective. Based on the developed framework and supporting theories, testable research models are proposed for future testing and theory building. The proposed organizational framework integrates a quality management framework and SSCM practices within the umbrella of the organizational profile emphasizing instrumental motives, relational motives, and moral motives. The proposed organizational framework provides a comprehensive overview on the functioning mechanism at an organizational level. The proposed organizational framework results in positive research models that provide future research directions and suggestions relevant to industry.
