Stanford Initiative for the Study of Supply Chain Responsibility (SISSCR)

A Forum initiative to explore the relationship between social, environmental and ethical practices and supply chain performance.

The goals of the SISSCR Consortium are to:

  • Understand the realtionship between responsible practices and supply chain performance
  • Explore the relationship between social and environmental practices and intellectual property protection
  • Share insights with supply chain practitioners

SISSCR's activities have been generously funded by gifts from Microsoft and We are seeking additional consortium members with an interest in advancing the state of the art in global supply chain responsibility.
