Abstract

A complete framework for assessing a green project management has not been clearly identified in prior literature. The purpose of this paper is to develop a set of dimensions and criteria for evaluating a green project management. An integrated approach combining the decision making trial and evaluation laboratory (DEMATEL) and the analytical network process (ANP) is used to determine the interrelationship structure and priority of each dimension and each criterion in a green project management. Six dimensions and twenty-four criteria of a green project management are identified based on related research in the fields of environmental sustainability and supply chain management. The empirical results show the interrelationship structure and priority of each dimension and each criterion in a green project management. The findings of this study provide important implications for both managerial managers and academic researchers. View Full-Text
