    While there could be separate streams of established research on lean production, global supply chain and sustainable development, the idea is to address the intersection of these strategic initiatives. The aim of the mission is to explore the link between sustainable development, global supply chain and the lean paradigm in the international changing competitive environment. Lean has long been kinked to improve operational performance and environmental performance. The concern is to analyze how companies could manage the lean and sustainable principles through the global supply chain in order to take advantage of synergy and to strenghten their operational expertise in an international environment.
