Abstract

This paper proposes and outlines a concept for manufacturing companies to improve their sustainability performance and manage sustainable production. Reviews of the current state of sustainable development at global and company level show that manufacturing companies need support and guidance to realize the objectives of sustainable development. Related to this, the challenges and barriers to realizing sustainable development faced by the manufacturing companies identified in the authors' recent research projects are also summarized in this paper. The proposed concept aims to overcome the challenges and shortcomings related to measuring, reporting, controlling and improving sustainability performance. The structure, content and development process of the concept are discussed and outlined in the paper.
