Measuring eco-intensity in an multi-tier food supply chain: a case study

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Organisations are facing increasing pressure from stakeholders to lower the environmental impact of their company and their supply chain. However, green supply chain management research has mostly focused on direct suppliers, with limited consideration of further upstream supplier tiers. This work aims to demonstrate the applicability of an innovative method to assess the eco-intensity of multi-tier supply chains, which adopts an indirect approach recognising the pivotal role of direct suppliers. Results from a single case study in a food supply chain show that the recursive method is effective in supporting environmental performance assessment of the whole supply chain
