Abstract: The main objective of the research and thinking presented in this study is to characterize the conditions and barriers related to the implementation of SDGs in supply chains. The explanation of the outlined research problem and the more detailed research issues prompted the authors to formulate the following auxiliary goals: identification and emphasis on the links between SSCM practices and UN SDGs and development of a model supporting the implementation of UN SDGs in SSCM. In summarizing our analysis of information from this field of inquiry, contributions to the literature include a new conceptual model, and a dynamic context for a three phased model for implementation of successful sustainable supply chain management initiatives. We provide a grounded approach for new theoretical insights that map supply chain practices for future research and performance measurement aligned with the United Nation's 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
