Abstract

Sustainability is about adaptively managing the environment on an on-going basis so as to insure that the Earth can continue to support human existence for the indefinite future. Supply chain design methodologies, e.g. p-graph framework, along with integrated sustai nability metrics (emergy and ecological footprint) along with cost can provide insight into supply chain performance. Carefully designed supply chains can be made cheaper and more environmentally friendly than current practice while meeting societal needs. Delicate trade-off appear on scale-up of supply chain.
