Abstract: Over the last few years, the topic of supply chain’s sustainability has been receiving more attention in order to attain positive sustainability results during the era of Industry 4.0. Supply 4.0 is seen as an approach to major sustainable progress being achieved. There is, however, no evidence to suggest what and how supply chain’s sustainability is affected by embracing Industry 4.0. The purpose of this research is to explore how supply chain is affected by integrating Industry 4.0 from sustainable point of view and to identify the economic, social and environmental factors resulted from this integration. Thus, 35 articles have been analyzed to explain the current status of the study and to delineate the key sustainability factors and subthemes for future studies. The paper suggests sub-goals or subthemes that could improve the understanding of how sustainability can be affected during the adoptions of digital technologies.
