Abstract

Sustainable Warehousing has tremendous potential to achieve goals of sustainable development but it is not well-researched for its impact on environmental, social and economic dimensions of sustainability. The authors have examined both academic literature and industry publications to extract high level constructs and operational elements for a sustainable warehouse. Content analysis was used to identify and develop sustainable warehousing themes which were then rigorously tested against industry standards to ensure their validity and reliability. These constructs and elements led to the development of a 'sustainable warehousing model' that is then translated into best practices to achieve environmental quality, social well-being and economic value in a warehouse.
