    Incorporating sustainability in supplier relationship management: a study of Swedish manufacturing SMEs2012Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    "The future belongs to those who give the next generation reason for hope" (Pierre Teilhard de Chardin; 1881-1955). This hope may rely on sustainable development and sustainability of corporations. Corporations have found that one way to achieve sustainability is to establish it in cooperation with their suppliers. Existing research, however, offers limited insights into sustainable supply management and effective buyer-supplier cooperation.Based on the literature on purchasing sustainable responsibility (PSR), commitment-trust theory of relationship marketing, and the triple bottom line of sustainability as an interconnection among economic, environmental, and social issues, a conceptual framework has been developed. By adopting the concepts of PSR and buyer-supplier cooperation, this thesis proposes that buying firms can enhance sustainability performance of suppliers, thereby improving suppliers‘ adoption of environmentally and socially responsible capabilities. To explore this proposition, this study develops and tests a number of hypotheses concerning the direct relationships among PSR adoption, buyer-supplier relationship, and sustainability performance of suppliers. Also, a set of hypotheses regarding how a buyer‘s dependency on sustainable suppliers moderates their relationship has been developed so as to offer more precise insights to practitioners as well as scholars. In testing the study hypotheses, the researcher used both qualitative and quantitative approaches to develop the research instrument. The survey instrument captures the opinions and views of a sample of 400 Swedish purchasing professionals who have dealt with sustainable purchasing for at least one year. After data collection, a structural equation modeling approach was used to analyze the data and test the research hypotheses.The results concerning the direct-effect hypotheses indicate that the buyer-supplier relationship can be improved by adoption of sustainable purchasing. Also, buyer-supplier cooperation can improve the sustainability performance of suppliers. This thesis also shows that suppliers‘ adoption of PSR directly leads to improvements in their sustainability performance. Regarding the analyses of moderator effects, results indicate that some moderating effects exist. Findings indicate that the buyer shows lower levels of trust in, commitment to, and cooperation with suppliers in highly dependent situations.Overall, this thesis offers empirical results evidence that PSR is an effective approach to improve the buyer-supplier relationship and boost the sustainability performance of suppliers. The results of the direct and moderating-effect hypotheses lead to recommendations to buyers and suppliers regarding important factors to consider when making PSR adoption decisions.

    Environmentally and socially responsible buyer supplier relationship management2015In: Ideas in Marketing: Finding the New and Polishing the Old : Proceedings of the 2013 Academy of Marketing Science (AMS) Annual Conference / [ed] Krzysztof Kubacki, Cham: Encyclopedia of Global Archaeology/Springer Verlag, 2015, p. 445-446Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Stakeholders expect corporations to improve their sustainability performance through observing environmental and social demands, and corporations respond to these requirements through applying corporate social responsibility (CSR). CSR can be achieved by designing a sustainable supply chain in cooperation with companies along the supply chain. The stakeholder pressure on corporations to become sustainable transfers across the supply chain to suppliers. Buying firms manage the relationship with suppliers through supply management. Then, supplying managers’ attention to customer’s sustainability demands and reflecting such demands in their supply can improve the sustainability performance of the suppliers. This improvement in performance of suppliers emanates in supplied products and services and it gives buying firm a comparative advantage against competitors. Accordingly, sustainable supply management and buyer-supplier cooperation on achieving sustainability can address the sustainability concerns of the current business world. However, very few existing studies have considered the impact of sustainable supply management on improving sustainability performance of the buying firm. The current study goes beyond improving the sustainability performance of the buying firm. Specifically, the present research illustrates how sustainable supply management and buyer-suppliers cooperation can boost sustainability performance of the suppliers

    Supply chain process maturity and financial performance study of Swedish steel SMEs2010Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The goal of this research is to demonstrate that the financial performance of the current year in Swedish steel SMEs is dependent on the amount of maturity of supply chain processes. This is examined by considering current supply chain process maturities of the firm together with financial performance of prior years. It was found that the delivery process of supply chain processes and prior cost of goods sold (COGS) have an effect on current COGS. Additionally, prior inventory and plan process of the supply chain have a positive and negative effect on inventory turnover respectively.

    Emerging trends in sustainability research: A look back as we begin to look forward2015In: International Journal of Environment and Sustainable Development (IJESD), ISSN 1474-6778, E-ISSN 1478-7466, Vol. 14, no 2, p. 154-169Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This research is a content analysis of 1502 peer-reviewed articles on sustainability. The aim is to investigate emerging themes and trends in this area of research and move towards recommendations for researchers to consider when developing their work in sustainability research. By exploring and tracking sustainability literature in the business and management disciplines over a 20-years period, patterns emerge that could provide a better understanding of the trends within authorship, research topic, and the themes and concepts being studied. One interesting contribution of this study is introducing the concept of the “4Ps of sustainability research,” which emerges by reviewing this area over time. The results suggest that the evolution of sustainability research can be summarized in organizations and firms moving from Principles and Policy towards Practice and Performance during over 20 years of sustainability efforts. This paper also discusses the creation of sustainability value and evolution of businesses to sustainability knowledge centers. It adds to the related literature, by proposing a new way of categorizing sustainability research over time, and introducing a framework for theory building in this area of research.

    Preferences of young news consumers: A conjoint analysis2015In: Ideas in Marketing: Finding the New and Polishing the Old : Proceedings of the 2013 Academy of Marketing Science (AMS) Annual Conference / [ed] Krzysztof Kubacki, Cham: Encyclopedia of Global Archaeology/Springer Verlag, 2015, p. 595-598Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As more people choose to obtain their news online, most notably young people, it became of interest to look at the changing habits of online news consumers. Using conjoint analysis of Swedish college students, this paper aims to answer the question, which news attributes within various news categories are most preferred by today’s online news consumers? Results indicate that accuracy and source credibility are the most important attributes across many news categories, followed by immediacy. Interestingly, interactivity was, overall, the least preferred attribute for young, online news consumers in one of the most Internet-connected countries in the world

    Stakeholders Engagement and Readability of Corporate Social Responsibility Reporting: A Study of Most Sustainable Firms2015In: Proceedings of the 40th Annual Macromarketing Conference, Chicago, Illinois: Marketing as Provisioning Technology : Integrating Perspectives on Solutions for Sustainability, Prosperity, and Social Justice / [ed] Clifford Shultz II; Raymond Benton; Olga Kravets, Macromarketing Society Inc., 2015, p. 684-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The social and environmental responsibility of business has become a major issue in recent years and communicating messages about such initiatives are likely to evoke strong and often positive reactions among stakeholders of every firm. Companies can generate favorable attitudes among their stakeholders by engaging them in CSR activities and eventually strengthen stakeholder-company relationships. As a result, there is a need for companies to communicate their CSR activities more effectively to stakeholders using different media. This paper considers the content of one type of such communications, the CSR report. Trough a content analysis, it looks at how five of top sustainable organizations address their stakeholders in their CSR reports. The readability of such reports for stakeholders will also be evaluated. The results suggest that only a selected number of stakeholders are addressed in the studied CSR reports and these reports found to be not readable enough for the intended audience.

    Understanding Consumers’ Perception of Sustainable Consumption: A ZMET Approach2018In: Back to the Future: Using Marketing Basics to Provide Customer Value : Proceedings of the 2017 Academy of Marketing Science (AMS) Annual Conference / [ed] Nina Krey, Patricia Rossi, Cham: Springer, 2018, p. 531-538Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Considering importance of consumers’ understanding of sustainability in shaping their attitude toward CSR and its successful implementation, this research uses the Zaltman metaphor elicitation technique (ZMET) to develop a deeper understanding of how consumers perceive sustainability in general and sustainable consumption in particular. Based on the premise that most human communication is nonverbal, we used pictures as the medium of data collection and asked the 52 participants in this study to collect pictures that visualize their perception and understanding of sustainable consumption.

    Results show that overall understanding of sustainability exists among respondents; however, the majority of them have very little knowledge about actual and global meaning of sustainable consumption. Moreover, there existed a discrepancy between different age groups’ understanding of sustainable consumption. Hence, knowing the role of individual’s perception and personal values in the behavioral intention formation process, and given the fact that consumers play a vital role in the success CSR activities, this study suggests that knowing consumers and their perception of sustainability is essential to firms for using CSR as a marketing and branding tool.
