What is Sustainable Supply Chain Management (SSCM)

According to IGI-Global dictionary search:

"SSCM may be perceived as the proper management of related environmental, social, and economic impacts in constructing and maintaining effective and efficient global supply chains. SSCM encourages governance practices at all levels of lifecycles of goods and services that reduce waste, ensure long-term maintainability and economic value of environmental and social well-being of all stakeholders’ interest in the creation and delivery of products and services. Although it is a very difficult task to bring into the decision process of the rights and needs of all interested stakeholders in the marketplace, it is to the long-term benefit of the properly managed supply chain relationships and corporate sustainability initiatives that ultimately promote broad-based sustainable development objectives for the good of people, plant, and profits (i.e., triple bottom-line)."
