A natural-resource-based approach to closed-loop supply chain management: competitive environmental sustainability in the fashion sector

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to conceptualise a natural-resource-based approach to closed-loop supply chain management, proposing a pollution prevention loop, a product stewardship loop and a clean technologies loop. This is intended to respond to calls for competitive environmental sustainable operations in fashion.
Design/Methodology/Approach: Conceptualisation is based on interrogation of literature. Qualitative content analysis supports identification of existing parallels between the natural-resource-based view and closed-loop supply chain management in literature.
Research Implications: This study bridges the gap between competitiveness and sustainability in closed-loop fashion, adds distinction and competitiveness to closed-loop supply chain management and advocates the application of NRBV resources in sustainable supply chain management.
Practical Implications: In presenting a natural-resource-based approach to closed-loop operations this study responds to the need for enhanced competitiveness and sustainability in fashion.
Originality: This paper forms the base of, and proposes a methodology for, a future empirical study of pollution prevention, product stewardship and clean technologies loops in fashion, and the impact on competitive environmental sustainability.
