It is commonly recognized that logistics has become a major
strategic issue for all companies, whether they are part of the
primary, secondary or tertiary sector. Faced with the external
pressures of globalization and competition, logistics optimizes
processes and reduces production and delivery cycles.

The use of Sustainable Supply Chain Management (SuSCM) is now
increasingly at the center of thought, due to the numerous factors
favoring its implementation: requests from various stakeholders,
governmental pressures (decrees, laws, regulations, etc.),
environmental pressures (pollution, disappearance of fuel fossils,
etc.) and societal pressures (reputation/image, protection, etc.).
However, there are still obstacles to the implementation of SuSCM,
including significant costs, the complexity of coordination and the
lack of communication within the whole supply chain. Nevertheless,
it should nowadays be included by any organization in its decisions
towards a strategic approach towards sustainability.

This book presents each economic, environmental and societal aspect
of SuSCM. By considering each of these dimensions separately, the
primary objective is to facilitate the implementation of the
elements that make it up. Readers are also provided with several
?strategic interpretive lenses? to be able to perform
audits and diagnostics of each component.

2. The Environmental Aspect of Sustainable Supply Chain

3. The Social/Societal Aspect of Sustainable Supply Chain
