In honor of Earth Day I have compiled a list of resources and research on “green” supply chain management. As Dr. Anna Nagurney says in her latest RENeW blog post,
…by being more efficient, we can actually be more green
- Supply Chain Management for Environment Improvement – Techniques and case studies for “greening” the supply chain
- Green Supply-Chain Management: A State-of-the-Art Literature Review – International Journal of Management Reviews, Vol. 9, No. 1, March 2007, Pages 53-80
- An Integrated Logistics Operational Model for Green-Supply Chain Management – Transportation Research, Volume 41, Issue 4, July 2005, Pages 287-313
- Green Supply Chain Management Implications for “Closing The Loop” – Transportation Research, Volume 44, Issue 1, January 2008, Pages 1-18
- Supply Chain Integration: Exploring Product and Environmental Contingencies – Supply Chain Management: An International Journal, Volume 11, Number 1, 2006 , Pages 34-43
I expect this will be a hot topic at this year’s INFORMS Annual Meeting in Austin.
What are other ways for operations researchers to help save the environment? How has your research helped us become more green?
