Supplier training and development for sustainability: a multi-stakeholder perspective

Lingxuan Liu (Pentland Centre, LUMS)

Sustainable supply chain management is essential to corporate sustainability. In many cases, supplier development is considered a necessary approach to achieve supply chain sustainability. This presentation will discuss the insufficiency of concept models, methods, and case studies from developing countries regarding supplier training & development for sustainability purposes, and introduce the multi-stakeholder perspective of supplier development based on observational studies and face-to-face interviews with OEMs, suppliers and other stakeholders. The presentation will also introduce the opportunities for collaboration in similar observational studies.

Lingxuan Liu joined Lancaster University as a 50th anniversary Lecturer in March 2016. He has a PhD in environmental policy and governance. He has also spent three years in a global environmental NGO working on supply chain reporting and disclosure. At Pentland Centre, he continues his research and engagement as a “pracademic” on topics including ethical supply chains, circular economy and public participation in environmental issues.
