Sustainable Supply Chains and Energy: Where “planet” meets “profit
Book chapter, 2019

The chapter provides a perspective on sustainable supply chains and energy with clear implications: profit must meet planet. The chapter begins with a brief explanation of the key concepts and explanatory logic of energy efficiency as a mechanism of sustainable supply chains. This is developed further through a systems-level perspective as a means of scoping the potential for energy efficiency improvements. A set of four types of logistics situations that cut through the supply chain illustrate how supply chains set conditions for energy consumption and improving energy efficiency.
