A multi-criteria decision-making approach for evaluating carbon performance of suppliers in the electronics industry|
Hsu, C. W.; Kuo, R. J. & Chiou, C. Y.
Although interest in addressing environmental
perspectives in supplier management is rising, incorporating
the issue of carbon management into supplier selection
in green supply chain is still considerably scarce. This
study presents a model for evaluating carbon performance
of suppliers by utilizing multiple-criteria decision-making.
Through literature reviews and expert opinions, 13 criteria
within carbon performance are identified for evaluating
suppliers. Subsequently, the analytic network process is
utilized to determine the relative weights of each criterion.
Finally, the VlseKriterijumska Optimizacija I Kompromisno
Resenje technique is employed to evaluate carbon
performance of suppliers and compromise solution under
each of the evaluation criteria. An illustrative example in
an electronics company is presented to demonstrate how to
select the most appropriate supplier in accordance with
carbon management. To be effective in mitigating carbon
risk across the supply chain, the proposed hybrid model can
help firms evaluate carbon performance of suppliers for
facilitating low carbon supply chain.
