Practices in sustainable networked operations

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to explore the sustainability management practices that companies deploy in order consider, control and influence stakeholders to implement sustainability in their networks. The study is based on 14 semi-structured interviews in three industrial companies. In the cases, influencing and managing suppliers was emphasised. There seem to be ready processes for the purposes of managing suppliers, but not for the needs of collaborating either with them or with other stakeholders. Shared practices for stakeholder collaboration and joint decision-making are still emerging.
