Sustainable supply chain design is nowadays an important topic where not only economic and environmental aspects should be accounted for, but also social aspects are to be considered. A mathematical programming model was developed and a case-study was performed considering two different social indicators: one that prefers facility location in regions of lower GDP and the other in regions of higher unemployment rate. Results show that the outcome depends on the indicator used. However, for the case presented, minimum cost solution also corresponds to a good social solution regarding GDP, which could translate into economic incentives for the company.
