The aim of this paper is present a multi-objective algorithm embedded with column generation to solve a green bi-objective inventory routing problem. In contrast with the classic Inventory Routing Problem where the main objective is to minimize the total cost overall supply chain network, in the green logistics besides this objective a minimization of the CO2 emisions is included. For solving the bi-objective problem, we proposed the use of NISE (Noninferior Set Estimation) algorithm combined with column generation for reduce the amount of variables in the problem.
