To manage or not to manage: Sustainability-risk interaction in the supply chain
Övrigt konferensbidrag, 2019

Escalating sustainability scandals that are triggered by ignorance, cost-orientation, lack of knowledge or misconduct at supplier levels, are putting pressure on focal companies to manage sustainability risks in a better way. This study aims to explore and understand the nuances in sustainability related risk management behaviour within supply chains by using theory of planned behaviour. Preliminary findings indicate that great effort is spent on controlling efficiency. However, the case is quite nuanced when it comes to social and environmental issues. Distinct decision patterns illustrate a framework for managerial behaviour for managing sustainability in supply chains.
