Abstract: Sustainable supply chain management (SSCM) is an essential strategy to reduce damage to the environment and support organisations in becoming more efficient, which impacts their overall performance. This article provides a framework strategy to help managers apply SSCM to their organisations and partners. The methodology employed in this study is based on the literature search, best practices, and needs of regional large, medium and small manufacturing companies regarding SSCM. Companies located in and around the city of Terre Haute, Indiana, USA, were visited to observe their sustainable initiatives. Employees responsible for supply chain management were interviewed. The companies included large-size companies, medium-size companies, and small-size companies. As a result of this research, a framework has been developed for SSCM implementation. This research's practical implication is that this framework can be used in any manufacturing company regardless of their size with some adjustment due to regional consideration.
