Abstract

Different stakeholders with varying degrees of influences, pressure companies to adopt more sustainable practices. Hence, the aim of this paper is to investigate and analyse how stakeholder influences and risks may impact the sustainability of supply chains (SCs). Social, environmental and economic concerns are addressed by a company’s engagement with different players in the supply chain. Respectively, companies become more vulnerable from exposure in their SCs and need to balance the pressures from stakeholders and sustainable practices to develop suitable risk mitigation practices. The authors use a qualitative approach by means of a systematic literature review to examine the empirical data on managing stakeholder influences and risks in sustainable supply chains. The findings of the analysis show that knowledge management, collaboration and top management commitment is a prerequisite for effectively managing various stakeholders and risks. However, further research could analyse stakeholders and the negative effects of their influences and the risks they pose.
