Abstract [en]


– This paper aims to describe and discuss a balance model of theoretical business sustainability, to leverage the inferior side, so as to enhance performance.


– A conceptual description and discussion are provided, along with an empirical depiction.


– The empirical illustration presents one organization that embodies the goals of theoretical business sustainability in the marketplace and society.

Research limitations/implications

– Further research is needed to enhance our understanding of the phenomenon and performance of business sustainability in supply chains.

Practical implications

– Findings highlight that there is no justification for practitioners to strive consistently for anything other than theoretical business sustainability, and stakeholders need to push organizations in that direction.


– The paper contributes to our understanding of what should be done and why business sustainability performance should be improved in supply chains.
