Supply Chain Sustainability: a Retailer Perspective
Since the publication of 'The Greening of Wal-Mart's Supply Chain' (Plambeck, 2007) the subject of sustainability has gained a clear focus in organisations' supply chain activities. (The Sustainable Business, EFMD, 2010) In fact the 2007 paper reported on Walmart's ambitions as outlined by CEO Lee Scott, in 2005. That plan was titled Sustainability 360. Based on information published by Walmart since 2007, this article discusses the organisational context of these initiatives and focuses on the supply chain and logistics practices that support their intentions. In the final discussion it draws the conclusion that logistics service providers (LSPs) can learn from practices operated by large retailers such as Walmart.
