Abstract:
The present study aims to develop a framework for sustainable supply chain risk management evaluation in the food packaging industry based on multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) methods in the fuzzy environment. An integrated MCDM approach is proposed based on Delphi, CRiteria Importance Through Intercriteria Correlation (CRITIC), and COmplex PRoportional ASsessment (COPRAS) methods. Through reviewing the research literature, related criteria were identified and selected based on experts' opinions and the fuzzy Delphi method. The fuzzy CRITIC method was used to determine the weights of the criteria. Finally, based on weighted indices and the fuzzy COPRAS method, food packaging suppliers were ranked according to their ability to manage the risks of sustainable supply chain activities. The results show that operational risks are essential in evaluating suppliers' risks in sustainable supply chain activities in the food packaging industry. Also, the three sub-criteria with the highest weights are defined as product quality risk, machines and equipment risks, and restrictions on green processes.
