Abstract: In the context of sustainable development, the effective management of supplier relationships has attracted particular attention in sustainable supply chain management (SSCM). This paper introduces the concept and provides an overview of various issues related to SSCM capabilities and evaluate their impact on business performance. Based on the quantitative study of European enterprises, an integrative framework for classifying capabilities and grouping enterprises relative to their dominant capabilities was developed. Also, the relationships between the most important capabilities and performance were presented. The findings are useful to define the dominant types of SSCM capabilities and indicate those that ought to be developed within a given organisation and those that have the greatest impact on the particular performance categories.

Keywords: sustainable supply chain; capabilities; organisations.
