Remanufacturing, Sustainable Operations, & the Environment:  Sustainability requires the simultaneous balancing of the economic and environmental considerations of doing business.  Managing these trade-offs is complicated by the dynamic, complex, and uncertain business environment. We invite conceptual, analytical, and empirical submissions that address recent advances in theory and practice in sustainable operations.

Potential topics include:

  • Reverse logistics
  • Remanufacturing
  • Sustainable and closed-loop supply chain management
  • Design for remanufacturing and the environment
  • Circular economy
  • Recycling
  • Supply risks associated with natural resource management
  • Sustainability strategy in product and process innovation
  • Alternative fuels and energy efficiency in logistics operations
