Sammanfattning

We introduce a comprehensive framework for sustainable supply chain management (SSCM) implementation in the mining industry. The framework includes six constructs, green information technology and systems, strategic supplier partnership, operations and logistics integration, internal environmental management, eco-innovative and end-of-life. Environmentally sustainable supply chain management practices in Ghana's gold mining industry are examined using DEMATEL and the analytical hierarchy process. The evaluation models found that strategic supplier partnership and end-of-life practices are the two most prominent and influential factors whereas lean and green operations, substituting toxic inputs with environmentally friendly ones and resale of used parts or components are prominent sub-factors. This study and resulting framework allows practicing managers in the mining industry to make thoughtful decisions on SSCM.
