DISCUSSING AND EVALUATING GREEN SUPPLY CHAIN SUPPLIERS: A CASE STUDY OF THE PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARD INDUSTRY IN CHINA

Jiann-Jong Guo, Sang-Bing Tsai

Abstract


Green supply-chain management is a novel idea that incorporates the concept of environmental protection into traditional supply-chain management in order to reduce environmental risks and impact. This study developed criteria for evaluating green suppliers on the basis of the green supply chain. The Decision-Making Trial and Evaluation Laboratory (DEMATEL) method was adopted to investigate the criteria for evaluating green suppliers, to explore inter criterion causal relationships and levels of mutual influence, and finally to discuss the mechanism for evaluating green suppliers, as well as the methods for selecting them..

Keywords
