Abstract

The lean/green supply chain paradigm supports a better performance in terms of economic, environmental and social dimensions. This paper describes a research about the deployment of advanced technologies such as internet of things (IoT), RFID, big data analytics and cloud computing to support the implementation of lean/green supply chain management practices and its influence on the performance. To this end, four lean/green supply chain management practices were studied: using green purchasing guidelines and sourcing from environmental sources, using reusable packaging to materials delivery, just-in-sequence and single sourcing. This paper main contribution is to provide a managerial perspective of how the advanced technologies could support lean/green supply chain practices helping to achieve a better supply chain performance.
