Abstract: There have been in the past ten years increasing concerns by governments, practitioners, and academics over the limited availability of natural resources. This represents a major challenge for national economies and businesses competing in this context. This work introduces a theoretical discussion of the recent debate on the role of resource-efficient supply chains in achieving business growth. We introduce the current status of the theoretical debate on the role of supply chain management as a socio-economic discipline in supporting the firm’s market position in the context of natural resource scarcity. Although there is a growing body of research exploring the topic of natural resource scarcity in the business management discipline, particularly in supply chain management, the way natural resources interact throughout the supply chain is still underexplored area of research
