System Dynamics as a tool for Green Supply Chain Management: A Theoretical Ransom
Under sustainable development pressures, organizations have to consider the relationship between the environment and activities of supply, production, distribution, consumption and disuse, which is known as “Green Supply Chain Management” (GSCM). The paper presents an overview of research work in these areas, followed by an introduction of the green concept in SCM resorting to System Dynamics (SD). The research method was based on an extensive literature review to describe the simulation-based framework of SD modeling. Simulation approach enables performance to be analyzed from a variety of organizational perspectives.
