“The urgency of environmental problems today and their global effects due to the interconnectedness of the world’s ecosystems imply that we should use all available theoretical tools to develop further insights about issues facing supply chains and possible ways to increase their effectiveness and efficiency. I hope that my research will have some practical implications and motivate increased sustainability efforts in today’s markets.”
