There is a sense of urgency for environmental action growing among consumers and most governments around the world, and companies are under increasing pressure to operate in a sustainable manner. There is also a growing conviction that environmental sustainability challenges require actions that will directly impact business strategies and supply chain practices. Systematic surveys and frameworks for environmentally sustainable supply chain management (ESSCM) which can be transformed into business practices continue to be excogitated. Such an evolution necessitates an understanding of the developments to recognize auspicious directions. Based on a comparative analysis of relevant literature, this paper proposes an evolutionary framework for ESSCM. It is intended to provide a framework for research and dialogue among industry managers and academicians to address environmental sustainability in supply chain management for long-term success, and provide a roadmap for organizations seeking to improve their sustainability practices.
