Supply Chain Management Assessment of Sustainability within Bioenergy Supply Chain Management.

The performance optimization of supply chains is an important process to promote sustainable development, since production activities and products distributions flows are closely linked to environmental changes. In this context, the sustainable supply chain management concept is understood as the management of services, products and raw materials along the chain with improvements to the environmental and social goals. This study analyzes the forest-based biomass supply chains with the purpose of proposing a performance assessment strategy. Sweden provided a framework that was used to design a strategy to guide supply chain performance evaluation. It is important to address that this study is the outcome of the partnership between Brazil and Sweden represented by UNICAMP, Universidade Estadual de Campinas, and KTH, Royal Institute of Technology, under the Erasmus Mundus External Cooperation Window EU-Brazil, StartUP Program.
