The Implementation of Voluntary Sustainability Standards in Supply Chains : A Capability View

fulltext etc. no fulltext attached
abstract Our exploratory case study research identifies five key capabilities of a focal firm to implement previously defined voluntary sustainability standards (VSS) (e.g., codes of conduct) in their entire supply chain(s), ultimately making supply chain partners (i.e. direct tier-1 as well as indirect tier-2..n sub-suppliers) comply with the VSS: inter-firm dialogue, risk management, external stakeholder collaboration, cross-functional integration, and continuous improvement. We further propose that those capabilities are contingent on the prevailing power relationship between the firm and its suppliers.
