CURRENT AND FUTURE RESEARCH
Building on the research completed to date, the Supply Chain Sustainability Research Fund is focusing its current phase of research on supporting studies to broaden understanding of the circumstances in which corporate supply chain commitments are most effective. Recognizing that commitments are developed and implemented in complex environments under unique conditions, the research will focus on uncovering nuances and context surrounding corporate commitments as a tool for sustainability—informing how, where, and why they are successful or not.
To guide the research, the Research Fund has supported the development a framework that helps to identify when and why supply chain sustainability initiatives improve conservation and sustainability outcomes.
The Research Fund is not currently soliciting research proposals. Please check back for future research opportunities, as well as the release of new studies from the current phase of research in fall 2020.
