Conclusion, further research and implications for business practice
In the following section, conclusions will be drawn from the results of this thesis with reference to the respective research questions. The primary research question (i.e., RQ:Which key resources does an institutional entrepreneur (the focal firm) require to design a voluntary sustainability initiative for supply chains that is legitimised by both participants and external stakeholders?) will be answered implicitly by the sequential answering process of the secondary research questions, rather than explicitly (i.e., the result of RQ is given by answering RQ5).
