The aims of this paper are to objectively evaluate the green innovation ability of manufacturing enterprises in an innovation network and to consider the mutual influence relationship and information randomness of each evaluation index. To do so, 14 indicators were chosen to capture the innovation environment, input, and output, and to construct an evaluation index system. The cloud model method is used to express the evaluation information to assign a quantitative value to qualitative information, and this method is combined with the entropy method to determine the initial weight of the indices. Then, the cloud model and decision-making trial and evaluation laboratory (DEMATEL) method are combined to determine the final comprehensive weight of the indices, and the similarity between each value and ideal value is determined by the cloud distance measurement method and the grey correlation analysis method. Finally, the effectiveness and stability of this method and an accurate numerical method are verified in an empirical analysis that evaluates the green innovation ability of different enterprises. The results demonstrate the superiority of the evaluation system proposed in this paper, which can provide a theoretical basis for the evaluation of the green innovation ability of enterprises.
