Abstract

There is an increasing necessity for business organisations to exercise a responsible attitude to sustainability issues and environmental governance. Transport systems are no exception and shipping, often forming a major component of international supply chains, is of particular significance in trying to enhance the performance of such chains. The general approach that business has focused on to improve ‘sustainability’ has been to address performance in three key areas: environmental, economic and social. Sustainable performance could, however, also consider technological, institutional and operational matters. In this context, therefore, which factors could constitute key indicators for measuring sustainability in shipping as part of the logistics chain? The aim of this paper is to evaluate the principle of sustainability in the context of the shipping industry and develop a theoretical framework of the different constituents that can play a role in sustainable shipping logistics.
