Description :
The A. outlines the supply-chain concept, and examines its current significance as a source of environmental pressure. The nature of any supply-chain pressure experienced by a cross section of manufacturing firms in Yorkshire and Humberside, and their actual responses to it, are considered. This investigation reveals that, because of heir economic importance, environmental pressure from customers has the potential to be significant. Environmental legislation is confirmed as by far the most important pressure forcing firms to mitigate their environmental impact.
