Special Issue "Sustainability Issues in the Textile and Apparel Supply Chains"
A special issue of Sustainability (ISSN 2071-1050).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 April 2017)
Sustainability has become a global issue. A sustainable supply chain should follow the Triple Bottom Line (TBL) and is environmentally friendly, socially responsible, and economically sustainable. Pollution and unsustainable practices are crucial in the textile and apparel supply chain. The challenge of being sustainable in textile and apparel supply chain management is to better predict and manage sustainability issues.
In this Special Issue, we aim to publish state-of-the-art research concerning sustainability issues in the textile and apparel supply chains. The research methodology can be qualitative or quantitative. Thus, the research methodologies, such as analytical modeling, statistical-based empirical analysis, and case studies, are welcomed. We also invite interested authors to contribute technical research and comprehensive review articles to this Special Issue.
