Chapter 30: Sustainable supply chains and regulatory policy

Nicole Darnall, Eric W. Welch and Seong K. Cho


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.
