Environmental performance EP is a comprehensive sustainable development concept. Thus determining the suitable EP indicator is an important process. This study combines structural equation modeling SEM and fuzzy analytic hierarchy process FAHP to identify the priority weight of factors for assessing the EP of Taiwans food industry. A SEM approach was used to develop and define EP factors and sub-factors using a questionnaire designed to gather data from 163 managers in the food industry. A FAHP approach was employed to prioritize the scores using a questionnaire to interview 21 experts regarding the different aspects of EP. The SEM results indicate that market orientation MO quality management QM and innovation capability IC have a positive and significant effect on EP. The FAHP results illustrate that quality policy quality assurance competitor orientation and quality control are most important in assessing EP. The findings of this study provide alternative ways to assess EP in the food industry and assist manager decision-making to reduce the environmental effects of the industry.
