Abstract: As new approaches, the dynamic alignment concept and the sustainable supply chain management paradigms are significantly impacting academia and the business environment. The dynamic alignment preconizes that companies should dynamically manage different types of supply chains (e.g. fully flexible, agile, lean, and continuous replenishment) in order to respond appropriately to various types of customers' behaviours. The sustainable supply chain management approach supports that the design and management of these different types of supply chains should take into account various environmental and social issues as complements to the traditional economic criteria. In a recent study, some authors combine these two trends in a novel conceptual model aiming to help decision-makers to better manage different environmental trade-offs when designing supply chain using the dynamic alignment concept. This paper presents some experimental studies in 'agile' supply chain in order to verify some of the assumptions made by the model. Simulation experiments were conducted in a large multinational company producing non-durable consumer goods. Results provide evidence that the proposed model is consistent and has the potential to help companies to design agile and green supply chains.
