Abstract [en]

Quality Management is considered to be suitable as support forthe integration of sustainability considerations in areas such as productdevelopment. The purpose of this paper is to review research in whichQuality Management methods, tools or practices have been used inconjunction with sustainable development initiatives. We have identifiedfour themes that synthesize the research on Quality Management and itssupport to approaches for sustainable development: (1) supportingsustainability through integration of management systems, (2) QualityManagement as support to the implementation of Environmental ManagementSystems and to the management of sustainability, (3) supportingintegration of sustainability considerations in daily work, and (4)supporting stakeholder management and customer focus. By far the mostresearch has been conducted within the first two themes. This paper alsocontributes with proposals for future research, such as the need to movebeyond existing standards and management systems to enable more radicalimprovements, and the need for empirical evidence of the effect ofintegrated management systems on environmental performance. We alsohighlight the point that Quality Management practices and tools must bedeveloped and adapted in order to support sustainability considerations.
