Book Review of Green Supply Chain Management: A Concise Introduction by Joseph Sarkis and Yijie Dou, Routledge (Taylor & Francis), New York, 2018. ISBN: 978-1-138-30281-5, 177 PP.
Keywords:Supply Chain Management, Green Supply Chain, Reverse Logistics, Green Purchasing, Supplier Relationships
The philosophy of greening supply chains requires interrelated logistics activities and initiatives in procurement and logistics that ensure sustainable processes and designs in strategic supply chains. This book is phenomenal as it provides all the necessary issues relating to product design, processes, and associations that ensure a green supply chain for Variety Company and organizational settings. This book is capable of equipping students and practitioners with the fundamental issues of greening the supply chain. The main weakness of the book is that it failed to provide analysis on the subjects of international logistics and international trade, antidumping rules in building sustainable global supply chains, technological constraints and issues in developing countries, the role of regional economic integration in greening supply chains, inbound and outbound logistics, technologies of marketing and supply chain management synergies, "green information and communication technologies", "smart ICTs" and "sustainable ICTs", and how those are related to green supply chain management. Nevertheless, the book is resourceful for university educators, researchers, and students. The book is also a useful tool for operations management researchers and policymakers at local and global levels. This book review is important as it helps readers understand what is captured in the book and decide whether to read it or not.
