Abstract

Social
sustainability is one of the keys to sustainable development. The social
sustainability agenda is not easy to be achieved without implementing pro-buyer
and pro- institutional policies. A sustainable development not only calls for
environmental and economic sustainability but also for social sustainability
that is the basis of sustainable development. Moreover, commonplace
unsustainable consumption practices increasingly manifest in manufacturing
firms in developing countries, making sustainable development management
failures highly visible and institutions relevant. We employee
Multiple-criteria decision-making (MCDM) approach to identify the critical
factors that hinder the implementation of social sustainability performance.
There exists a scarcity of investigations on appropriate planning regarding a
global partnership for achieving SDGs in the area of sustainable development.
This paper provides an empirical analysis of the many practices that
implementing sustainable development goals (SDGs), SDG 3, SDG5 and SDG17 pose,
and contributes to sustainable development. To promote and meet the UNSD goals,
it proposes adopting buyer requirements, improving institutional related
policies are the most promising approaches to support and implementation of
social sustainability. The aspects of social sustainability at manufacturing
firms can be achieved primarily by buyer collaboration and better institutional policies. social sustainability
has become a marketing tool and is
becoming more important for all the companies, across
all industries. We believe this paper is of interest to practitioners and
academicians who deals with social sustainability initiatives at manufacturing
firms.
