Sustainable manufacturing practices are becoming the main goal of developing economies. This study identifies effective industrial, trade, and innovation policies that support strategies toward sustainable manufacturing practices implementation. This study provides a framework to achieve the research aim in the Algerian economy, where sustainability issues are especially relevant. Initially, the common sustainable manufacturing practices are collected from literature resources end expert views. The random walk method is adopted using the Policies Design Structure Matrix, expressed as the dependency between two given policies. Results show that innovation policies encourage sustainable manufacturing practices implementation more than trade and industrial policies. For firms in such developing and emerging economies, managerial insights are relevant for implementing the proposed random walk process to relieve their weaknesses toward sustainable manufacturing practices.

Keywords: Sustainable manufacturing practices, sustainable strategies, developing economies, random walk, Design Structure Matrix
