This study aims to identify the conditions in which Tier-I suppliers will implement lead firms’ sustainability requirements across multi-tier supply chains. It aims to build on existing literature by examining the role of Tier-I supplier from agency and institutional theory perspectives. In addition, it also identifies whether selective disclosure can exist when Tier-I suppliers couple with their double agency role. Taking a case study approach, we focus on agri-food commodities such as soybeans, palm oil and cocoa which have strong sustainability implications. Data were collected from several sources and case analyses were conducted. Results are encouraging for managers and policymakers.
