Nowadays, many countries have implemented carbon pricing policies. Hence, the industry adapts to this policy while striving for its main goal of maximizing financial benefits. Here, we study a single manufacturer–retailer inventory decision considering carbon emission cost and item deterioration for an imperfect production system. This study examines two models considering two cases of quality inspection. The first is when the buyer performs the quality inspection, and the second is when the quality inspection becomes the vendor’s responsibility so that no defective products are passed to the buyer. Carbon emission costs are incorporated under a carbon tax policy, and we consider the carbon footprint from transporting and warehousing the items. The objective is to jointly optimize the delivery quantity and number of deliveries per production cycle that minimize the total cost and reduce the total carbon emissions. This study provides solution procedures to solve the models, as well as two numerical examples. View Full-Text
