  • Publication in the field of economic science

Sustainability advanced to an omnipresent topic among academics and business leaders, while at the same time a growing share of a firm’s total expenditure accounts for purchased materials and services. Yet, academic research still lacks a detailed understanding of how sustainability considerations affect the relationship between buyers and suppliers in a competitive supply chain setting. With his three articles on Sustainability in Supply Chains, Thomas Leppelt contributes to extant literature across the disciplines of supply chain management and marketing by cross-functionally investigating the effects of sustainability on supplier-buyer relationships from both a supplier and a buyer perspective.

·         Marketing of sustainable supply chain management capabilities in business markets

·         Drivers of marketing-purchasing integration at the supplier level



Target Groups

·         Researchers and students in the fields of supply chain management, marketing, and management

·         Managers and experts who are interested in strategically managing their supply chain towards sustainability
