This paper aims at studying the economic and environmental performance of buyer-supplier ordering policies according to different coordination relationships. Several models illustrating different outcomes of the buyer-supplier negotiation are proposed. Among them, a new model of a supplier leader supply chain is introduced and discussed. The impact of buyer-supplier coordination on the supply chain environmental performance is challenged in this paper. It is namely shown that the total supply chain carbon emissions may be greater when buyer and supplier ordering policies are fully coordinated. The setting of a carbon price may also lead to similar outcome.
