Detailed Instructions for Completing the Data Extraction Worksheet Important: Not all papers will have information on all of these topics. Read the paper carefully, identify which of these topics are present in the paper and extract the relevant information. Date: Include the date in which you completed the form Title: Include the title of the paper you are analyzing Year: Include the year of publication of the paper you are analyzing Country: If data for the paper you are analyzing was collected in a particular country (or countries), please list all country (countries). Region: If you identified a country (or countries) related to the paper, please list the appropriate region(s) that country or countries belong to.

Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, North America, and/or Oceania Economy: Based on the country/region you specified, please identify whether the paper has a developed or developing economy. Sometimes papers relate studies that took place in a diversity of countries. If the study took place in South Africa and England, for example, you would list ?developing? and ?developed?. Industry sector: If applicable please list all industry sectors cited in the study you are analyzing. Methodology: Please list the methodology used in the paper. You will find this information in the methodology (or methods) section of the paper. Sustainability Practices: Please identify whether the paper addresses social, environmental and/or economic sustainability practices. Best Practices: Identify best practices on sustainability in supply chains mentioned in the paper. ?A best practice is a method or technique that has consistently shown results superior to those achieved with other means, and that is used as a benchmark?

Costs: Implementing sustainable best practices in supply chains can be costly and some studies have tried to identify the costs related to the adoption and implementation of these practices. Identify any passages that mention the costs associated with the adoption of best practices. Types of Sustainability Practice: Please list the practices in each of the three dimensions of sustainability (economic, social, and/or environmental) mentioned in this paper. Examples of practices in each of these dimensions include, but are not limited to: Social ? work conditions, engagement with local community, social certification (e.g. SA 8000), etc. Environmental ? energy efficiency, pollution control, water treatment, waste reduction, protection of biodiversity, reduction of carbon emissions, environmental certification (e.g. ISO 14000, FSC certification), etc. Economic ? job creations, payment of taxes, micro-loans provided to smaller companies, promotion of economic development, etc.
