This is the ground-breaking new book for aspiring purchasing and supply chain leaders and anyone with a keen interest in this rapidly evolving field. For too long business has focused on short-term cost advantages through low-cost country sourcing with little regard for the longer-term implications of global sustainability. As the first book to fully address the environmental, social and economic challenges of how companies manage purchasing and supply chains, it aims to inspire the development of current and future purchasing and supply chain leaders. In addition to explaining the basic principles and processes of both purchasing and supply chain management, the book evaluates how to develop strategic and sustainable purchasing and supply chain management. A key message is that purchasing and supply chain management needs to focus on value creation rather than cost cutting. This requires the development of completely new purchasing and supply chain models that involve closed-loop supply structures, supply chain transparency and collaboration with new stakeholders in traditional sourcing and supply chain processes.

Aimed at students, educators and practitioners the book integrates sustainability into each chapter as a core element of purchasing and supply chain management. Incorporating case studies from industry into each chapter, the book strikes a balance between theoretical frameworks and guidelines for implementation in practice.

Review:

‘Developing and maintaining sustainable business and supply chain practices are no longer optional for firms today. Purchasing and Supply Chain Management: A Sustainability Perspective, provides cutting-edge insight and direction for students, practitioners, and academics to successfully analyze, develop and manage purchasing and supply chain management practices that are critical for holistically improving "triple bottom-line" performance in terms firm and supply chain financial performance (profits), society (people), and the natural environment (planet).’ - George A. Zsidisin, Ph.D., C.P.M., Professor of Supply Chain Management, Virginia Commonwealth University, Co-Editor, ‘Journal of Purchasing & Supply Management’

‘This book takes a fresh look at purchasing and supply chain management. First, traditional concepts of purchasing and supply chain management are well covered. Second, sustainability issues are incorporated so that a more inclusive picture emerges. This text will prepare students well for future challenges.’ - Prof. Dr. Stefan Seuring, Professor of Supply Chain Management, University of Kassel, Germany

"Students (and their business professors) and every purchasing agent should treat it as required reading" -Crosslands Bulletin

'Johnsen et al. offer a comprehen-sive text that reaffirms the strategic importance of pur-chasing and SCM in business but also in education for sustainability. This strategic perspective is certainly the main takeaway from the book that in turn makes it par-ticularly valuable for managers.'
Anne Touboulic PhD, Journal of Marketing Channels
