Sammanfattning

It has been argued that long-term environmental initiatives make organizations more efficient because they strive to reduce resource use in various ways. In temporary organizations, however, objectives are shortterm and are prioritized over other long-term considerations. Thus, how can “green logistics” be incorporated into temporary organizations without compromising short-term objectives? By combining the literature on temporary and permanent supply networks and green logistics in the humanitarian context, findings show that five main gaps between green logistics and disaster relief can be reduced by the application of a permanent-temporary approach. Further research is suggested for its application in other temporary contexts.
