This book is tailored for an academic and a professional audience. In academia, the book introduces postgraduate students to operations (basic to complex) and supply chain knowledge or practices. On the professional side, the book assists professionals working in, or preparing for, leadership roles to support the sustainable business practices and goals of their organisations. It will also benefit professionals who need to develop collaborative partnerships with supply chain partners to achieve sustainable business practices throughout the supply chain. Those who work (or aspire to work) within operations or supply chain, and who are responsible for analysing green challenges and implementing green supply chain practices will also find this book useful. This book bridges the gap between theory and practice as it makes references to contemporary issues and cases within the industry, Africa and the rest of the world.
