Chapter 29: Sustainability in humanitarian supply chains

Ira Haavisto and Gyöngyi Kovács


Humanitarianism has long been considered socially responsible by definition. However, other aspects of sustainability, such as environmental responsibility, ethics and even long-term sustainable development, have been less emphasized in the humanitarian context. The aim of this chapter is thus to review the various meanings of sustainability in humanitarian supply chains and to provide state-of-the-art research in this area. As the chapter highlights, the concept of greening in particular can be seen to have a long way to go, but with the pressing issue of climate change already leading to wars and climate refugees, the focus is also turning to the ecological dimension of sustainabilityin humanitarian supply chains.
