Alongside Sustainability’s emergence as a pressing issue for discussion, it is concerning that there exists no unanimity pertaining to its definition and underpinning principles. Especially with it being addressed from various organizational functions, research disciplines and theoretical lenses. Building on the research gap realized through a Systematic Literature Network Analysis (SLNA) of the theoretical utilization of research within the SSCM domain, accompanied with the text mining of top organizations’ sustainability reports, the most influential theories to Sustainable Supply Chain Management (SSCM) are identified and their interrelationships and interactions presented in a tree model setting the precedent for future research.
