Based on a multi-stage procedure involving a literature review, expert Q-sort and pre-test process, pilot test, and survey of 156 supply chain directors and managers in Ireland, we develop a multidimensional conceptualisation and measure of social and environmental supply chain management sustainability practices. The research findings show theoretically-sound constructs based on four underlying sustainable supply chain management practices: monitoring, implementing systems, new product and process development and strategy redefinition. A two-factor model is then identified as the most reliable: comprising process-based and market-based practices.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Taylor and Francis||Copyright (published version):||2014 Taylor & Francis||Keywords:||Sustainable supply chain management; Social sustainability; Environmental sustainability; Construct development||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
