Complete 10 pages APA formatted article: Concept and Significance of SSCM. In the article, ‘Why research in sustainable supply chain management should have no future’ published in Journal of Supply Chain Management during 2014, Pagell and Shevchenko relate that the concept of Sustainable Supply Chain Management (SSCM) is constituted by several parameters pertaining to the economic, social and environmental aspects. Developing the concept of SSCM on the above aspects is taken to enhance the performance of Supply Chain Management systems (Guercini and Ranfagni, 2013). The generation of the SSCM concept as a bifurcation from the existing studies related to supply chain management gains significance, owing to the rise of sustainability issues relating to depleting natural resources and also the growing demand of stakeholders for better working and living standards. These issues also generate potential challenge relating to the development and application of SSCM practices (Pagell and Shevchenko, 2014).&nbsp.Linton, Klassen, and Jarman in the article, ‘Sustainable Supply Chains: An Introduction’ authored during 2007 in the Journal of Operations Management indicate the significance of integrating the concept of sustainability with supply chain activities. The focus of sustainability relating to social and environmental issues aims to evaluate the activities by moving beyond the scope of the normal supply chain. It tends to integrate the activities related to product designing, manufacturing, and management of by-products and also in evaluating the product life cycle so as to generate minimal social and environmental impacts. Relating to product designing and manufacturing, SSCM aims to govern the activities to generate minimal environmental impacts both during and after the usability period of the product.&nbsp.
