Purpose – Fashion supply chain (FSC) research has identified two important issues of sustainability management and risk management. However, investigation of these issues is relatively sparse and has primarily been independent with little combinatory research, despite their important interrelationships. The purpose of this paper is to address that gap by critically reviewing extant literature to synthesise important sustainability risk issues in FSCs and proposing an empirical research agenda. Design/methodology/approach – This paper uses a structured literature review approach and Denyer and Tranfield’s (2009) context, intervention, mechanisms and outcome (CIMO) criteria for critical analysis to enable the development of future empirical research areas. Findings – While sustainability and risk are discussed independently in the supply chain literature, combinatory discussions are very limited, despite the interdependence of these concepts. There is little substantial research on sustainability risk in global FSCs and therefore, an empirical research agenda is proposed with the four research directions to address the gap and take forward the notion of supply chain sustainability risk management in FSCs: definition; organisation and management; influence on performance; and development of a conceptual framework. Research limitations/implications – This paper provides a critical literature review and thus lacks empirical study. Practical implications – This paper highlights important issues in sustainability risk management for FSCs and presents an agenda for future empirical research. Originality/value – This paper contributes by providing a combinatory synthesis of sustainability and risk management in FSC literature and an agenda for future empirical research.
Identifying research directions and conclusion
The purpose of this paper is to investigate the relationship between two important issues in FSCs: sustainability management and risk management. A structured literature review was undertaken with Denyer and Tranfield’s (2009) CIMO criteria for critical analysis in order to develop and justify future research areas. This review found that combinatory investigation of these issues is relatively sparse and has primarily been independent, despite their important interrelationships. Consequently, this paper addressed that gap by critically reviewing the extant literature to synthesise important sustainability risk issues in FSCs and by proposing a research agenda for future empirical work.
Focussing on three areas of FSCs, sustainability management and risk management, our SLR identified the most important issues in FSCs to be: introduction of fast fashion as a new phenomenon and a new business model, management structure, relationships, co-opetition and power mechanisms in FSCs. Due to globalisation, outsourcing, off-shore manufacturing and fashion characteristics of demand volatility and unpredictability, impulse buying, short product life cycles, agile and responsive supply chains are required but may result in unsustainable practices which have been exposed by NGOs and the media. Recent scandals have magnified the already persistent issues of sustainability and hence further increased risks in FSCs.
