背景和目标 （Background and Objectives）
可能由人为碳排放引起的气候变化是人类社会的重大危险。随着联合国发展目标 (SDG 7) 将全球变暖控制在比工业化前水平高出 2°C 的范围内，政府间气候变化专门委员会 (IPCC) 强调了在 21世纪中期实现碳中和的重要性。包括中国、欧盟、英国、日本、韩国和加拿大在内的 120 多个国家已承诺到 2050-2060 年实现碳中和，也称为净零排放。运营和 在实现这些雄心勃勃的目标方面发挥着关键作用。为此，作为一个学术团体，我们必须识别可以支持碳中和的运营调整机会，提供所需的工具和见解，制定战略方法， 并探索在净零碳排放被优先考虑时运营和价值链的管理该如何发展。
碳中和目标意味着二氧化碳净零排放，涵盖人类社会和生态系统的各个方面，需要全球所有公司的行动。鉴于全球呼吁实现碳中和，迫切需要深入研究以确定实现碳中和的挑战、障碍、解决方案和途径。在之前的研究中，低碳供应链和运营越来越受到关注（Atasu 等人，2020；Gopalakrishnan 等人，2020）。例如，为了减少碳排放，企业需要提高能源效率，并从化石燃料衍生能源向可再生能源过渡（Atasu 等人，2020 年）。然而，仅仅减少碳排放不足以实现长期温度目标。为了实现碳中和，还需要抵消碳排放（例如，重新造林和负排放技术）。因此，随着公司为脱碳或碳中和制定战略和调整运营，必须确定和实施技术解决方案、扩大合作伙伴关系和创新实践。在此过程中，公司还需要考虑成本和收益、权衡、紧张关系、协同效应、合作、风险以及对多个利益相关者和公司竞争力的影响。
本期 JOM 专刊的目标是促进运营和战略方面的研究，以通过实现碳中和来改善环境和社会效益。 本期专刊邀请在运营和供应链管理方面具有明确基础的论文，通过说明公司及其供应链如何实现碳中和，为碳中和提供管理、战略、技术、运营、社会和政治方面的见解。
Climate change, possibly caused by anthropogenic carbon emissions, is a vital peril to human society. With the establishment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 7) to contain the global warming within 2°C above the pre-industrial level, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) underscored the significance of attaining carbon neutrality by the middle of the 21st century. More than 120 countries, including China, EU, UK, Japan, South Korea, and Canada, have pledged to achieve carbon neutrality, also referred to as net- zero emissions, by 2050-2060. Operations and supply chain management have a critical role in achieving these ambitious goals. To do so, we as a scholarly community must identify opportunities to adjust operations so as to support carbon neutrality, provide needed tools and insights, develop strategic approaches, and explore how the management of operations and value chains must evolve when net-zero carbon emission is prioritized.
The carbon neutrality target denotes net-zero carbon-dioxide emissions, encompasses all facets of human society and ecosystems, and requires the actions of all firms around the globe. Given worldwide calls for carbon neutrality, in-depth research is urgently needed to identify challenges, barriers, solutions, and pathways to achieve carbon neutrality. In previous research, low-carbon supply chains and operations have received growing attention (Atasu et al., 2020; Gopalakrishnan et al., 2020). For example, to reduce carbon emissions, firms need to improve energy efficiency and transition from fossil-fuel-derived sources of energy to renewable sources (Atasu et al., 2020). However, mere reduction of carbon emissions is not sufficient to achieve the long-term temperature target. Offsetting carbon emissions (e.g., reforestation and negative emissions technologies) is also needed to reach carbon neutrality. Thus, as firms develop strategies and adapt operations for decarbonization or carbon neutrality, technological solutions, expanded partnerships, and innovative practices must be identified and implemented. In doing so, firms also need to consider costs and benefits, tradeoffs, tensions, synergies, cooperation, risks, and implications for multiple stakeholders and firm competitiveness.
The goal of this JOM special issue is to stimulate research in operations and strategies for providing environmental and societal benefits through achieving carbon neutrality. This special issue invites papers with a clear grounding in operations and supply chain management that provide managerial, strategic, technical, operational, social, and political insights into carbon neutrality by illustrating how firms and their supply chains might attain carbon neutrality.
