Sustainable supply chain management
In general terms, supply chain management can be defined as ‘the management of upstream and downstream relationships with suppliers and customers to deliver superior customer value at less cost to the supply chain as a whole’ (Christopher 2011: 3). In this context, upstream to downstream represents the predominant flow of materials from their source to finished goods or services at the point of distribution, while information flows in both directions. The discipline of supply chain management therefore incorporates numerous business functions ranging from product design to procurement, facilities management, production,logistics, marketing, finance and distribution.
