This paper introduces the concept of responsible supply chain based on two dimensions, the core processes of a supply chain and the concept of corporate social responsibility (CSR). It is suggested that a responsible supply chain is achieved through manifested core values of the supply chain actors, strategies and tactics. The paper further discusses the individual sujpply chain actors' responsiblity in securing a responsible supply chain beyond the actors' direct control. A conceptual model and a definition of a responsible supply chain are offered. Our model not only provides structure to the extant research but also develops new constructs and relationships that improve the conceptualization of the responsible supply chain. The paper is based on a review of 81 research articles published between 2000 and 2010 in which elements of CSR and supply chin processes are included.
