March 22nd and 23rd
9h - 19h
Besides the focus on what is necessary to introduce in sustainability management, there are several questions on how and why sustainability has been developed in operations and supply chain management.
Thus, understanding the practices of sustainability helps to go beyond the traditional perspective towards a more multi-disciplinary and holistic approach of sustainability management in supply chains and operations.
We are pleased to share with you our draft programme as of November 2020!
- Opening session
We will open the conference with a roundtable welcoming Stelvia Matos and Stefan Seuring on the topic of practicing sustainability in supply chains. We will discuss different perspectives in research and practice concerning this field, such as, for instance, the need to account for different socioeconomic contexts, different types of pressures from supply chain stakeholders, etc.
