Excellent article in the Sloan Management Review that identifies how sustainability might be incorporated into ERP systems.  It argues that customers want information about the social and environmental impact of products.  And the way in which this could be provided is to measure and monitor these aspects of the production process through the ERP system.  The authors do not pretend that this will be easy, collecting accurate data on non-financial measures is challenging.  But they give some examples of operators that are striving to achieve this.
