Resumen

In recent years, increased attention has been devoted to exploring how sustainability practices can be implemented in supply chains and networks. Much of the operations management literature in this area has mainly focused on the large buying firms perspective, looking at how they devise standards and push suppliers to comply with them. Little has been done to uncover how small and medium size (SME) suppliers react to and cope with increasing sustainability requirements with limited capabilities in hand. This paper is an attempt to fill this gap and initiate conceptual thinking from a suppliers perspective. Qualitative insights from case studies of both developing and developed countries suppliers are offered. We draw on the sensemaking literature and propose the concept of "sustainability dissonance" to conceptualise the situation of uncertainty and ambiguity that SME suppliers are confronted to when facing multiplying sustainability requirements. A number of propositions are articulated related to suppliers interpretations and reactions when dealing with "sustainability dissonance". The article sets out a number of avenues for future research.
