Assessment of the Brazilian cash operation through the approach of sustainable supply chains
MetadataShow full item record
The Brazilian cash logistics operation is sustained by one of the country's major supply chains and involves the flow of notes and coins between banks, various players of the economy and the population as a whole. Due to its dimension and geographic range, this chain produces a significant carbon footprint. The present study seeks to further explore the cash logistics operation using the sustainable supply chain approach, thus analyzing the chain framework and its management and suggesting improvements to be implemented as a means of reducing the equivalent carbon emission of this chain. As a final conclusion, it is observed that the use of environmental measures to monitor and assess the global impact of the cash supply chain management framework is still very limited.
