Abstract: Firms operating within supply chains need to understandand consider whether their respective supply chains aresustainable or not. Sustainable supply chain relates tosupply chain issues that can range from child labour andexploitation of workers at suppliers’ premises on one handto ozone depletion, deforestation and global warming onthe other. These sustainability dimensions can beanalysed through 3 main perspectives which are accordingto mainstream sustainability framework: theenvironmental, social, and economic consideration. Inorder for a supply chain to be sustainable, there is a needto balance these three proposed dimension ofsustainability.The purpose of this paper is to develop a framework toassess the sustainability of any supply chain based on thethree sustainability dimensions of the environment, socialand economic requirements. It is expected that based onthese 3 sustainability dimensions, the characteristics forsustainable supply chain can be defined and proposed forfurther empirical research.
