商业专家认为，商业管理在全球格局中不断变化的动态要求可持续发展。需要指出的是，在供应链管理中引入的可持续性概念意味着有必要纳入旨在减少负面社会和环境影响的商业实践(Lambert & CC, 2000，第65-83页)。因此，沃尔沃集团可以采取适当的改变，在建模他们的购买习惯。Roa等批评者认为，供应链管理者可以通过设计绿色产品和组织环保意识研讨会来实现社会和环境的可持续性(China et al.， 2014, pp. 696-698)。它们可以发展其支持系统和环境上可持续的做法，以提高其生产质量。
然而，Sarkis认为组织的主要责任是改进他们的实践。他建议，企业在采取和制定商业实践战略时应整合环境可持续性(Chinaet al.， 2014, pp. 696-698)。这将涉及采用企业社会责任或企业社会责任，这将包括公司的购买习惯。然而，Paulraj认为，公司治理的责任是与供应商在采购原材料方面进行合作，以便引入减少废物的技术。这将鼓励供应商实施创新战略，改善技术基础设施以提高生产质量(China et al.， 2014, pp. 696-698)。鉴于这一情况，应当指出，采用这种作法将需要在人民和供应商中传播必要的教育，以提高环境意识。因此，可以批判地认为，沃尔沃集团可以组织研讨会和环境意识运动，教育其供应商采取环境可持续做法的重要性。沃尔沃集团的目标是通过采取环保的购买习惯的过程来提高大城市的流动性和生活质量(Prnewswire, 2012)。
The business experts are of the opinion that the changing dynamics of the business management on the global landscape demands for sustainability. It is to be noted that the concept of sustainability being introduced in the supply chain management implicates the necessity of incorporating business practices that would aim at reducing the negative societal and environmental impacts (Lambert & CC, 2000, pp. 65-83). Therefore, suitable changes could be adopted by the Volvo Group in terms of modeling their purchasing habits. Critics like Roa argued that society and environmental sustainability could be adopted by the supply chain managers by designing green products and organizing awareness seminars (China et al., 2014, pp. 696-698). They could develop their support system and environmentally sustainable practices to improve their production quality.
However, Sarkis is of the opinion that mainly the responsibility of the organization is to improve their practices. He recommends that the companies should integrate environmental sustainability while adopting and strategizing their business practices (Chinaet al., 2014, pp. 696-698). This would involve the adoption of the CSR or the corporate social responsibility that would encompass the purchasing habit of the company. However, Paulraj has contended that it is the responsibility of the corporate governance to collaborate with the suppliers in procuring the raw materials so that waste reduction technique could be introduced. This would encourage the suppliers to implement innovative strategies and improve the technological infrastructure to enhance the production quality (China et al., 2014, pp. 696-698). In the light of this context, it is to be noted that the adoption of the practice would require dissemination of the necessary education among the people and the suppliers to increase the environmental awareness. Therefore, it could be critically contended that the Volvo Group could organize the seminars and environmental awareness campaigns to educate their suppliers regarding the importance of adopting environmentally sustainable practices. The Volvo Group aims at improving the mobility and the quality of life in the megacities that could be effectuated through the process of adopting the eco-friendly methods of purchase habits (Prnewswire, 2012).
