Supply chain performance management: lean and green paradigms

Carvalho, H., S. G. Azevedo, and V. Cruz-Machado. "Supply chain performance management: lean and green paradigms." International Journal of Business Performance and Supply Chain Modelling 2 (2010): 304-333.


Supply chain management ({SCM)} is crucial for increasing organisational effectiveness, enhancing competitiveness, customer service and profitability. Actually, the lean and green philosophies have been adopted in the {SCM} context, but nearly always separately and with little understanding of their influence on supply chain performance. Accordingly, this paper intends to propose a conceptual model that explores the relationships between lean and green practices and supply chain performance. A set of lean and green {SCM} practices and a performance measurement system are suggested. The proposed performance measures intend to evaluate the practices influence on operational, economic and environmental supply chain's performance.
