Prof. Sujit Singh, Prof. Puja Chhabra Sharma, Prof. Paulo Fernando Pinto Barcellos, Margareth Rodrigues de Carvalho Borella

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 article 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. There is a critical need for gaining a deeper understanding of the impact of decisions on operations; it is a conclusion of the study. Simulation has been found to be one of the popular and suitable mechanisms for understanding Supply Chain Dynamics.
