Resumen:
Lean and green are major, compatible management initiatives because of their joint focus on waste reduction, efficient use of resources and emphasis on satisfying customer needs at the lowest possible cost (economic and environmental). From this angle, this paper presents a bibliometric analysis of the integration of lean and green management. To that end, this paper analyses 685 research papers retrieved from the Scopus database using the following parameters: year of publication, discipline, source, institution, country and citations. This final dataset was composed of articles from scientific journals published between 1992-2018. Furthermore, VOSviewer software was used to map the bibliographic material using the coupling of countries and the co-occurrence of keywords. The analysis indicates that research on lean and green topics has increased in recent years, and that moreover the topic is structured into three clusters: 1) manufacturing; 2) energy, emissions and costs; 3) Lean Six Sigma. These highlights can facilitate the development of future research on this topic.
