While the goal of environmental sustainability provides positive global impact, its implementation should consider the inherent variations in the local environmental, social, and economic contexts. Recognizing that supply chain partners do not share uniform interests in adopting sustainability practices, this chapter develops a theoretical framework to explicate the diverging interests along the chain and suggests potential economic and policy measures to align them. The chapter informs its arguments through an exploratory study of sustainability measures in a typical built environment—hotels—which is an ideal lab to research sustainability.

Keywords:   environmental sustainability, global impact, local environmental context, policy measures, sustainability measures, hotels, built environment
