ASME`s Technologies for Sustainable Life (TSL) is a series of concise and timely monographs exploring the interface between engineering and the environmental sustainability agenda.  The series adopts a broad base examining fundamental principles and paradigms before a contextual exploration of ecosystems and resources, sustainable manufacturing, energy technology, environmental pollution and finally aspects of environmental governance. 

Each monograph is written by leading experts in their field and examines the relationship and contributions of engineering to the topic of study.  As a series, TSL addresses a long-awaited niche in engineering publishing, providing in-depth discussions of environmental significance set within a technology, economic and policy context.  For more information about the series, go to: http://www.asmepress.org/tslseries.html

Abstract: This monograph focuses on the issues facing sustainability in supply chains.  Specifically it provides an overview of green supply chain management (GSCM) and the management of technology within this context.  The topics include the operational and technological activities and characteristics of GSCM management.  Organizational greening activities that play a role in GSCM operations are presented.  The monograph also provides functional activities of the GSCM which include supplier management, internal operations management, logistics, and reverse logistics issues.  Managerial considerations related to planning, justifying, and implementing GSCM and the respective technologies provide some insights into management decisions that will be faced in this environment.  The references and bibliography provide a dozens of additional readings for those interested in this emergent and complex issue.
