Sustainable consumption and production in emerging markets
Tan, Kim Hua
- Publisher: Elsevier
This special issue addresses sustainable consumption and production (SCP) in emerging markets by examining novel methods, practices, and opportunities. The articles present and analyze top-down sustainability efforts as well as bottom-up efforts on firms, supply chain networks, government regulations, and solution methods. This editorial note summarizes the discussions on the firm's operational attributes, sustainable consumption and production practices, and on evaluation and implementation methods. A dominant finding is that the issues of SCP should be explored in different ways within different contexts in emerging countries.
