The relationships between regulatory policy and sustainable supply chain principles are covered in this chapter. Three general regulatory policies are considered: (1) command-and-control regulation; (2) market-based policies; and (3) non-regulatory approaches. How each regulatory policy encourages companies to re-evaluate their processes for supplier selection and contract negotiation is presented, along with various examples and dimensions for supporting these relationships. Future considerations are also presented.
