  Considering the globalization of the economy and other associated trends, therefore it require a much broader conception of productivity and a fuller appreciation of the changing dynamics of the determinants involved in the process of its improvement. The increased competitiveness, internationalization and sophistication of markets, the globalization of manufacturing and the increased concern about social and ecological issues make productivity improvement more important. Productivity improvement through better utilization of the energy, materials, water, solvents, etc. is now seen as an effective tool in preventing pollution at source. Productivity improvement must therefore take into full consideration the impact of the production, distribution, consumption and disposition processes on the environment. While meeting the customer needs, products and services supplied and the processes used to produce and distribute them must have minimum negative impact on the physical environment. This study is therefore, mainly motivated by the quest to answer the question: How does GP enhance overall productivity and environmental performance?”

  Innovation is a primary concern of industry and logistics services are constantly looking for ways to innovate in order to gain competitive advantage revolutionary. Green innovations can have a major impact in reducing the environmental burden of this industry particularly in terms of pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. The collaborations can also engage with industry and play a role by providing the right environment for companies to innovate. From this context, it is evident, there is a need for integrating green innovations in logistics. One of the big challenges facing the industry at present is creating a long term sustainable society with the least possible negative environmental impact. They added that in response to this pressure, a new approach of green innovations to logistics emerged in the early 2000s which went beyond the standard logistical imperatives for efficient, effective and fast handling and movement of goods and took into account measures for protecting the earth's environment or sometimes, it was referred to green logistics approach. The green logistics refers to plan, control, management and implementation the logistics system through the advanced logistics technology and environmental management, aiming to reduce the pollutant emission. This study will only address the issue of green innovations in logistics as a focus of this study. It is believed that a green innovation in logistics is a promising area of study and practice that have the potential to provide significant benefits to the firm and the society.

  It is argued that regulatory, social and cultural pressures that have been imposed on organizations play significant roles in determining the internal practices and structures. These mechanisms created and spread common set of values, norms as well as rules, which produced similar practices and structures across organizations that shared similar field. The elements of institutional isomorphism within the halal food industry started to emerge, when the Malaysian government decided to regulate the industry. This need to be done in order to ensure the quality of halal food products is maintained. Due to the increment in the adoption of halal logo, authorities should have a clear understanding of the underlying reasons behind such interest. Therefore, the objectives of this small-scale study are to provide greater understanding of the current situation related to the effect of institutional pressures on the inter-organizational imitation within the halal food industry. Findings showed that respondents perceived their companies to face high mimetic (m = 3.783) as well as normative pressures (m = 3.733). This implied that respondents seemed to believe that institutional pressures do exist within the Malaysian halal food industry.

  Recent supply chain accidents due to epidemics, terrorist attacks and severe earthquake in Haiti killing thousands of people as well as typhoon over Manila causing flood to wash out millions worth of property, indicate that firms are vulnerable in today's highly integrated supply chains. Global financial crisis started in the mid 2007 has also brought further implications on supply chain problems. As economic recession reached the bottom line, supply chain managers experience a different kind of risks as the source of vulnerability. The effectiveness of supply chain mitigation strategy which provide a greater ability to respond volatile circumstances is immediate important. This study explores the perspectives of managers in the manufacturing firms on supply chain vulnerability and mitigation strategy within Indonesian environment. The result reveals that supply chain vulnerability is a relatively new concept for them. However, their firms have implemented certain mitigation actions to avoid fatality in the supply chain network.

  This study to validate the measures for the determinants that influence the student’s intention to enroll an online MBA program, in particular USM online MBA. About 180 questionnaires were distributed to the adult who has obtained at least a bachelor’s degree and the response rate of 67% was obtained. The analysis was carried out by using factor analysis. It was also found that the initial four constructs with total of 13 items for learner’s characteristics had been reduced to 8 items which were grouped under three factors, the original four constructs for institutions characteristics reduced to three, technology characteristics were initially grouped under three constructs had been reduced to 10 items contained in two constructs by combining the construct of perception of usefulness and ease of use into one. The remaining two variables remain the same. Accordingly, the study provides reliable measures so that the relationships between the independent and dependent can further be analysed in order for the Graduate School of Business as well as other policymakers in the field of higher education can have insight into what is taking place in the domain of virtual campuses and means to set up a sustainable initiatives and strategies for a successful online education.

  This study is an attempt to highlight steps to be taken by business organizations through supply chain risks management to make sustainable development a reality. This study is based on the exploratory study done to investigate the importance of supply chain risks management. The survey data was obtained from 10 manufacturing firms in Indonesia. The survey was conducted using structured interviews directed to the supply chain representative in each firm. The results indicate that most of the managers admitted that their respective companies could not fulfill the demand if disruption of supply chain risk occurs and therefore, it is necessary to manage the risks by developing supply chain risk strategies. In addition to this, companies should develop strategies that can mitigate the impact of these risks. Supply chain risks management, therefore can play significant role in achieving the triple bottom line of social, environmental and economic benefits and therefore, contributing to sustainable development of the society.

  Performance of the hotel industry is very significant contribution towards economic growth of the tourism sector. The preparations of Halal food and hygienic accommodations will give an added competitiveness advantage to the hotels in attracting the local and foreign tourists, especially those from the Middle East, West Asia and other Islamic countries. Muslim tourists, particularly from West Asia are increasingly sensitive and wanted access to more sophisticated holiday destinations and Halal dining. Nevertheless, statistics from JAKIM has shown that only 101 hotels all around Malaysia have applied and secured the Halal certificate from JAKIM, MAIN and JAIN while the rest still not doing so. It is therefore will be important to understand the reasons why most of the hoteliers are non-compliance to halal. From the exploratory study randomly conducted to 8 non-certified halal hotels, it is discovered that most of the managers are not well understood the importance of halal certification. They still can have the successful business without being certified with halal hotels as majority of their customers are non-Muslims. This results indicate that the perceived of benefits towards halal certification could be as one of the factors that influenced them not to apply for the certification. It is important for the Malaysian government to enhance the hoteliers understanding on the outcomes of having the halal certification so that the acceptance level can be improved.

  The Halal industry involves farm-to-table operations. This has led to the development of new links within the value chain most notably in the area of information technology. Given the advancement in science and technology and the on-going initiatives to improve society, it is essential that the Halal concept be fully understood by industry players as well as customers. Halal traceability system and Halal tracking system are emerging as lucrative areas in the global Halal market. An effective traceability and tracking system in Malaysia is essential to mitigate the risks associated with Halal that can disrupt the international trade of Malaysian Halal food. Traceability and tracking systems function as a tool for communication making information available along the supply chain. However, recently Malaysia’s latest claim to be one of the Halal hubs in the world was put to test due to the unbelievable result of recent raid carried out by the Malaysia authorities. The finding was appalling and unethical as some so-called Halal foods manufacturers do not comply with the regulation set by the Malaysia authorities.
