W artykule podjęto problem nierównowagi relacji w kształtowaniu zrównoważonego łańcucha dostaw (SSC). Analiza relacji kupujący-dostawca została przeprowadzona z wykorzystaniem analizy studium przypadku łańcuchów dostaw branży spożywczej. Wykazała ona, że występująca przewaga wymusza osiąganie zgodności z wymaganiami rozwoju zrównoważonego (SD). Cele i inicjatywy SD są określane w sposób arbitralny, a ich koszty oraz ryzyko przerzucane na dostawców. Z perspektywy zarządzania organizacjami praca przyczynia się do lepszego zrozumienia wpływu nierównowagi na wdrażanie rozwoju zrównoważonego. (abstrakt oryginalny)

The paper is concerned with the problem of imbalance in supply chain relations in the forming of a sustainable supply chain. Analysis of the purchaser-supplier relationship is conducted with the use of the case study method. It shows that the presence of an advantage enforces compliance with the requirements of sustainable development. The objectives and initiatives of SD are determined in an arbitrary way, but their costs and risks are transferred to suppliers. From a management perspective, the paper contributes to a better understanding of the influence of imbalance on implementing sustainable development. (original abstract)
