Abstract: In the history of sustainable development, logistics has been thought of as one of the key factors in the supply chain network. In the meantime, the issue of Closed-loop Supply Chain (CLSC) has received considerable attention as it ensures many diverse industries toward sustainability. But many industries including agricultural section often fail to address and fulfill these requirements. In this study, a new CLSC network is designed for the walnut industry as a part of agricultural crop by conducting a complete review of the past studies. Therefore, a new Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MILP) for the proposed network is developed minimizing the overall costs of the walnut industry. The designed network considers both forward and reverse flow not only to meet the demands of various markets, but also to prepare the returned products for the second use. In order to solve the proposed model, a set of exact, metaheuristics, and hybrid metaheuristics are employed. Finally, the best solutions are obtained by assessing the finest initial answers using Taguchi method. The results notoriously illustrated the excellent consistency between the proposed network and the employed algorithms along with its applicability and efficiency.

Abstract: In this study, we investigate the role of decision-making and coordination related to carbon reduction within humanitarian supply chain. Accordingly, a two-stage supply chain consisting of a single manufacturer and a single retailer has been designed, within which three strategies for carbon emission reduction have been considered, namely direct procurement of carbon emission right, investment in fixed carbon reduction targets, and investment in reducing carbon emissions per unit product. The game model under decentralized decision-making, centralized decision-making, and coordinative status has been established. The influences of both consumer carbon sensitivity coefficient and carbon trading price on investment decision based on carbon emission reduction within supply chains, as well as the optimal decision of supply chain operations, are all discussed in this paper. Our study shows that the choice of supply chain carbon reduction strategies depends on carbon trading price and fixed emission reduction target, both the wholesale price and selling price of products are positively correlated with carbon trading price, and both optimal production volume of supply chain and optimal expected profit of supply chain operations are negatively correlated with consumer carbon sensitivity coefficient. The price discount contract may realize coordination within a supply chain, but the value of discount price depends on respective negotiation ability.

Abstract: This study aims to propose an Ethico-Religious green supply chain management (GSCM) view grounded in Islamic teachings design to govern human beings working in the industries.,This study adopts a qualitative approach that used the semi-structured-interview method as a research instrument. Three experts researching various aspects of Islam were consulted to identify Islamic teachings related to green supply chain practices.,This study identifies several verses of the Holy Quran and the hadiths (a collection of traditions containing the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad) related to GSCM. It proposes these teachings as pro-environmental ethical codes.,The proposed model has not been tested empirically. Future studies can consider an empirical test to find the possible effect of ethical codes on human behavior.,This study contributes to the literature in several ways. First, it presents an Ethico-Religious GSCM view that is new in the literature. Second, it extends the key premise of the natural resource-based view theory for achieving superior competitive advantage. Finally, it proposes a human governance approach useful for achieving firms’ environmental goals. This paper is helpful for managers who will find a human governance model supported by the Ethico-Religious GSCM view.

Abstract: Undertaking a review of the literature is an important part of any research project. The researcher both maps and assesses the relevant intellectual territory in order to specify a research question which will further develop the knowledge base. However, traditional 'narrative' reviews frequently lack thoroughness, and in many cases are not undertaken as genuine pieces of investigatory science. Consequently they can lack a means for making sense of what the collection of studies is saying. These reviews can be biased by the researcher and often lack rigour. Furthermore, the use of reviews of the available evidence to provide insights and guidance for intervention into operational needs of practitioners and policymakers has largely been of secondary importance. For practitioners, making sense of a mass of often-contradictory evidence has become progressively harder. The quality of evidence underpinning decision-making and action has been questioned, for inadequate or incomplete evidence seriously impedes policy formulation and implementation. In exploring ways in which evidence-informed management reviews might be achieved, the authors evaluate the process of systematic review used in the medical sciences. Over the last fifteen years, medical science has attempted to improve the review process by synthesizing research in a systematic, transparent, and reproducible manner with the twin aims of enhancing the knowledge base and informing policymaking and practice. This paper evaluates the extent to which the process of systematic review can be applied to the management field in order to produce a reliable knowledge stock and enhanced practice by developing context-sensitive research. The paper highlights the challenges in developing an appropriate methodology.

Abstract: Academic and corporate interest in sustainable supply chain management has risen considerably in recent years. This can be seen by the number of papers published and in particular by journal special issues. To establish the field further, the purpose of this paper is twofold. First, it offers a literature review on sustainable supply chain management taking 191 papers published from 1994 to 2007 into account. Second, it offers a conceptual framework to summarize the research in this field comprising three parts. As starting point related triggers are identified. This allows putting forward two distinct strategies: (1) supplier management for risks and performance, and (2) supply chain management for sustainable products. It is evident that research is still dominated by green/environmental issues. Social aspects and also the integration of the three dimensions of sustainability are still rare. Both practitioners in companies and academics might find the review useful, as it outlines major lines of research in the field. Further, it discusses specific features of sustainable supply chains as well as limitations of existing research; this should stimulate further research.

Abstract: The authors conducted a qualitative study of the motivations and contextual factors that induce corporate ecological responsiveness. Analytic induction applied to data collected from 53 firms in the United Kingdom and Japan revealed three motivations: competitiveness, legitimation, and ecological responsibility. These motivations were influenced by three contextual conditions: field cohesion, issue salience, and individual concern. In this article, the authors also identify the conditions that likely lead to high corporate ecological responsiveness.
