Supply chain management is a crucial aspect of global business operations, focusing on environmental and societal values. Sustainable supply chain management addresses issues such as corruption, fair labor practices, deforestation, water security, climate change, and human rights. The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the inability of traditional supply chain management methods to handle disruptions, resulting in catastrophic social, political, financial, and environmental impacts. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic has reignited interest in sustainable supply chain practices, with research focusing on the effects of COVID-19 on supply chain sustainability and measures to ameliorate these conditions. The aim of this study is to conduct conceptual analysis on supply chain sustainability during the crisis. The study has identified three main factors that contribute to Supply Chain Sustainability: SC Crisis Mitigation Strategies, Supply Chain Adaptive Strategies, and Supply Chain Collaborative Strategies. The study leads to an understanding of sustainable strategies, which are crucial for competitiveness in volatile environments, and efficient recovery from disruptions is essential for preserving supply chain continuity and minimizing long-term consequences. Improved risk reduction and better cooperation with the distribution side are emphasized.
