Abstract:

Companies are perceived as key actors in the drive for sustainability and are expected to supervise and develop their suppliers’ efforts towards social and environmental responsibility. The purpose of this article is to investigating if buying firms help develop sustainability management practices in their existing suppliers in Ghana. Data was collected through exploratory survey from conveniently sampled respondents in focal firms actively involved in the supply management activities of their organizations. Results reveal less evidence of sustainable supplier development activities by the focal firms both on environmental and social dimensions. Buying firms should take necessary steps towards implementing structured sustainability development activities to effectively manage a sustainable portfolio of their existing suppliers.
