Sustainable operations management

Author: Kleindorfer, Paul R. ; Singhal, Kalyan ; Van Wassenhove, Luk N.INSEAD Area: Technology and Operations ManagementIn: Production and Operations Management, vol. 14, no. 4, winter 2005 Language: EnglishDescription: p. 482-492.Type of document: INSEAD ArticleNote: Please ask us for this itemAbstract: Operations management researchers and practitioners face new challenges in integrating issues of sustainability with their traditional areas of interest. During the past 20 years, there has been growing pressure on businesses to pay more attention to the environmental and resource consequences of the products and services they offer and the processes they deploy. One symptom of this pressure is the movement towards triple bottom line reporting (3BL) concerning the relationship of profit, people and the planet. The resulting challenges include integrating environmental, health, and safety concerns with green-product design, lean and green operations, and closed-loop supply chains. We review these and other "sustainability" themes covered in the first 50 issues of Production and Operations Management and conclude with some thoughts on future research challenges in sustainable operations management.
