Green Supplier selection is becoming an important issue in supply chain management. In recent years, determining the obtaining green supplier in the supply chain has become a key management consideration. However, these decisions usually involve several factors or criteria, and it is often necessary to eliminate among possibly conflicting factors. Thus, the multiple criteria decision making (MCDM) becomes a very useful and important approach to solve this kind of problem. Considering both tangible and intangible criteria, this study proposes integrated Grey Relational Analysis and Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) approach to solve the Green Logistics Supplier Selection problem. The advantage of this method is that it allows decision makers to set multiple aspiration levels for supplier selection problems. The model proposed is illustrated by an example in a paper industry. This is a first of its kind study based on a medium size Indian paper industry.
