Carbon Emission; Continuous Review Inventory

Abstract

"This study analyzes an integrated inventory control and supplier selection problem in stochastic demand environment under carbon emissions regulations. In particular, a continuous review inventory model with multiple suppliers is investigated under carbon taxing and carbon trading regulations. We analyze and compare the optimal supplier selection and order splitting decisions with single sourcing and two alternative delivery structures for multi-sourcing, namely, sequential ordering and sequential delivery. For each of the three ordering policies, a solution method is proposed and these policies are compared in terms of their economic as well as environmental performances. A numerical study is conducted to demonstrate the efficiencies of the solution methods proposed. Further numerical studies analyze how the economic and environmental performances of different ordering policies vary as the supplier capacities and lead times change"--Abstract, page iv.
