Abstract: In line with the values and characteristics argued in Berke and Satir (2011), two frameworks are developed at company level in this sequel article: one for legacy supply chains and the other for future supply networks. A survey is designed and conducted to assess the level of contribution each characteristic makes in transforming a company from a not sustainable legacy stage to a future sustainable stage. Findings of the survey are discussed in terms of metrics used and outcomes. General and specific insights obtained from the survey are presented.
