About the Project

Manufacturers all over the world are coming to realise the adverse impact of their day-to-day operations on climate change. As their long-term prosperity depends on this change, manufacturers should address environmental concerns equally with the economic and social needs of today and the future. In parallel, scholars have discussed the promising impact of Big Data in the field of supply chain and operation and have conducted investigations on the role of Big Data Analytics in transforming manufacturers’ supply chains. However, to achieve sustainability and deal with the repercussions of climate change, there is significantly less research on how manufacturers develop their Big Data capabilities over time, what are the factors that constrain or inhibit this process, and what are the driving forces or pressures that motivate them to initiate Big Data analytics projects in moving to a low-carbon future. As such, the overall goal of this research project is to investigate how the contrasting pressures, enablers and constraints interact to initiate adoption and gradual maturation of Big Data and Business Analytics towards meeting the UK government’s low carbon future agenda.
