Supply chain configuration and moral disengagement
University of Borås, School of Engineering.
2013 (English)In: International Journal of procurement management, ISSN 1753-8432, E-ISSN 1753-8440, Vol. 6, no 6, 718-736 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This research shows that supply chain configuration may facilitate or restrict opportunities of moral disengagement. It is proposed that a moral decoupling point is a point through which materials, information, and money may be transferred, while acting as a roadblock for moral responsibility. Decoupling points allow researchers to understand how moral responsibility is connected with supply chain configuration. By mapping and removing moral decoupling points managers can structure their supply chains to increase moral responsibility of employees and better fulfil ethical guidelines. Empirical material is two-fold in this study. Firstly we investigate media reports of four cases, where Swedish companies' moral is questioned. This is complemented with three real-life case studies from three global Swedish led textile companies.
