Using game theory to describe strategy selection for environmental risk and carbon emissions reduction in the green supply chain (2012)
Journal Article
Zhao, R., Neighbour, G., Han, J., McGuire, M., & Deutz, P. (2012). Using game theory to describe strategy selection for environmental risk and carbon emissions reduction in the green supply chain. Journal of Loss Prevention in the Process Industries, 25(6), 927-936. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jlp.2012.05.004

This paper provides an approach in the context of green supply chain management, using game theory to analyze the strategies selected by manufacturers to reduce life cycle environmental risk of materials and carbon emissions. Through the application... Read More about Using game theory to describe strategy selection for environmental risk and carbon emissions reduction in the green supply chain.

Carbon emissions intensity ratio: An indicator for an improved carbon labelling scheme (2012)
Journal Article
Zhao, R., Deutz, P., Neighbour, G., & McGuire, M. (2012). Carbon emissions intensity ratio: An indicator for an improved carbon labelling scheme. Environmental Research Letters, 7(1), Article 014014. https://doi.org/10.1088/1748-9326/7/1/014014

This letter proposes a new carbon labelling scheme to improve the visibility of products' life cycle carbon emissions (sometimes defined as carbon footprint). This approach starts by normalizing carbon emissions data on a common scale of 'carbon emis... Read More about Carbon emissions intensity ratio: An indicator for an improved carbon labelling scheme.

Materials selection for cleaner production: An environmental evaluation approach (2012)
Journal Article
Zhao, R., Neighbour, G., Deutz, P., & McGuire, M. (2012). Materials selection for cleaner production: An environmental evaluation approach. Materials and Design, 37, 429-434. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.matdes.2012.01.014

This paper demonstrates an integrated approach to the selection of materials for cleaner production, using binary dominance matrix and grey relational analysis to aid decision-making by engineers. The starting point of this study is to determine the... Read More about Materials selection for cleaner production: An environmental evaluation approach.

Preliminary study of hazardous materials management: An optimization model in the context of green supply chain management (2011)
Conference Proceeding
Zhao, R., Neighbour, G., & Deutz, P. (2011). Preliminary study of hazardous materials management: An optimization model in the context of green supply chain management. . https://doi.org/10.1109/icbbe.2011.5781397

Although the general framework of supply chain management usually focuses on the production process, as well as the delivery of the product to the market and the consumers, the treatment and disposal of waste materials is usually given little deliber...
