Green supplier selection of a textile manufacturer: a hybrid approach based on AHP and VIKOR

Billur ECER [1] , Ahmet AKTAS [2] , Mehmet KABAK [3]


Because of the increasing popularity on protecting the environment, consumers prefer environmentally friendly products in recent years. Due to the trend between consumers, companies have changed their production processes. The first necessity for production of an environmentally friendly product is to supply less harmless raw materials. Therefore, companies have to supply production inputs from green suppliers in order to produce environmentally friendly products. Since the wide use range of textile products make them products that is desired to be green products, green supplier selection of a textile manufacturer is considered in this study. The main aim in this study is to propose a decision model for determination of the best green suppliers. In the proposed model, Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Vise Kriterijumska Optimizacija I Kompromisno Resenje (VIKOR) methods are integrated. AHP is used to determine criteria weights and VIKOR is used to evaluate alternative suppliers. Seven alternative green suppliers are evaluated by taking 5 main criteria and 17 sub-criteria into account according to the opinions of planning department experts of the company. Alternative green suppliers are ranked by using the proposed methodology and the study is concluded with suggestions for further studies and by giving some managerial implications.
