Este artículo explora los antecedentes organizacionales y la implementación
de prácticas de Gestión Sostenible de la Cadena de Suministro
(GSCS) para una muestra de firmas focales en Colombia. Para tal efecto,
se utiliza un diseño de investigación cualitativa semi-estructurada. Este
estudio contribuye al desarrollo de la teoría de la GSCS al aportar bases
empíricas para entender la naturaleza de estas prácticas y el alcance de
su implementación en un determinado contexto industrial, así como
para determinar sus efectos en la competitividad de las firmas focales.
Adicionalmente, los resultados principales sugieren que las responsabilidades
ambientales y sociales son cuestiones cada vez más importantes
para los accionistas de las firmas focales en economías emergentes
