This dissertation follows the three-essay models and features two important topics in supply chain management, power dynamics in buyer-supplier relationships and sustainable supply chain management. The first paper is a conceptual paper on power imbalance in buyer-supplier relationships, which provides some theoretical refinement. The second paper is on the role of culture in environmental management. The third paper examines the synergy between the two and investigates the role of power in sustainable supply chain management and how power moderates the role of sustainable engagement in buyer-supplier dyads that are embedded in bigger supply networks.
