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.

Groen voorsieningskettingbestuur is 'n nuwe idee wat die konsep van omgewingsbeskerming tot tradisionele voorsieningskettingbestuur byvoeg om sodoende die omgewingsrisiko's en -impak verminder. Dié studie het 'n kriteria vir die beoordeling van groen verskaffers op grond van die groen voorsieningsketting ontwikkel. Die "Decision-Making Trial and Evaluation Laboratory" (DEMATEL) metode is aangepas om die kriteria vir die beoordeling van groen verskaffers te ondersoek, om die onderlinge maatstaf oorsaaklike verhoudings en vlakke van wedersydse invloed te ondersoek en om die meganisme vir die beoordeling van groen verskaffers en die metodes om hulle te kies, word bespreek.
