Supply chain management (SCM) and procurement are playing a vital role in modern economies. In the last decades, it has been dedicated a growing attention to the importance of strengthening links along the different steps of a supply chain (SC). Sustainability, as well, is a trending topic that has affected the propensity, for a vast range of stakeholders, to explore more inclusive frameworks and accounting systems to measure the overall impact of economic activities. The better understanding of the sustainability implications is crucial for an effective impact on current goods and services production systems. The aim of this chapter is to focus on the potential connections that exist between SCM, procurement, and sustainability. Three main sections follow: (i) a common definition of SCM and procurement, (ii) the shift toward sustainability in SCM and procurement, and (iii) an overview of three relevant case studies.
