S. Santhosh | B. Shahul Hamid Khan
Abstract: Green and human rights are becoming an important criteria for industry to achieve global standards. In this paper, we concentrated on the textile industry, which is considered as the base industry across the globe. Environmental load is increased because of the waste from the textile industry. Maximum waste is generated while converting the fiber into raw material for the textile industry. Textile companies are keen in selecting suitable and Green suppliers in their supply chain to increase their environmental performance and decrease their hazardous effects on the environment. For selecting suitable and Green suppliers a performance evaluation system is necessary. Thus, in our study, a model for evaluating the traditional performance along with a Green and social performance of suppliers is proposed using Grey approach. The criteria required for the evaluation are obtained through a brainstorming session. The identified criteria are evaluated using the grey approach. Finally to validate the weights of the criteria a sensitivity analysis was conducted.
