The problem of improving the environmental performance of a supply chain without entailing excessive cost is becoming a frequent problem as companies face an increasing pressure from governments and customers for reducing the environmental impact of their activities. As the environmental improvement of an operating supply chain implies not only technology upgrading decisions, but also decisions regarding the structure of the supply chain itself
deciding on what strategy to follow is a complex task. The aim of this work is to provide a bi-objective solution approach for finding such strategy so that both the environmental and financial goals are best met.
