Corporate Social responsibility and Supply Chain Management
Following a recent stream in the CSR literature V. Carbone and V. Moatti rely on the Variety of Capitalism theory, which identifies different institutional contexts according to cross-national differences and similarities. Thanks to the exploitation of a CSR rating database (Innovest) reporting longitudinal scores both for social and environmental performance on about 1200 companies belonging to different countries and distinct industries, the authors evidence different patterns for CSR institutionalisation and identify relationships between sustainable behaviour, sustainable supply chain, and specific context. Their preliminary findings from exploratory analysis allow for the formulation of a few propositions and suggest a general framework to be developed in future works.
Collaborative Supply Chain and Environmental Issues
V. Carbone and C. Meunier (INRETS) are analyzing the diverse forms of collaborative supply chain and describing the way they involve an environmental dimension. According to an explorative approach, and relying on case studies, they assume that different forms of proximity among the actors determine specific collaboration forms and distinct attitudes in the “greening” of the supply chain.
