Abstract

In recent years, sustainability has become an important issue for businesses and the broader society (Porter and Kramer 2011). An increasing number of organizations have endeavored to improve their business operations within their organization and supply chains to enable them to achieve economic, environmental, and social benefits, which is known as the Triple Bottom Line (TBL) (Elkington 1997). Various sustainability initiatives introduced are based on the sustainable development principle (Brundtland 1987) that encourages the fulfillment of the needs of the current generation without compromising the ability of the future generations to meet their needs.
