Whether designing an entirely new supply chain or simply making a sustainable process change to a single material stream, the ability to effectively engage the external world in business sustainability driven process changes becomes critical to success.  This requires organizations to be aware and actively manage the dynamic relationships with their key stakeholders.  

Our professional consulting works with clients to build long term business sustainability programs that add value by identifying critical relationships and taking proactive steps to engage these stakeholders in the process changes.  This collaborative effort is critical in the development phase; however, questions often arise in discussing post implementation sustainable supply chain management.
 
The truth of the matter is that there is no clear cut answer on where control should reside within the supply chain.  Companies such as IBM and Wal-Mart are tapping into the value of their tremendous buying power to engage suppliers in their business sustainability objectives, effectively having suppliers manage themselves.  But, not everyone can be a Wal-Mart.  Small businesses, start-up companies, and newly formed supply chains usually do not have this supply chain leverage.
