Abstract

This research presents critical success factors (CSFs) for developing energy-efficient supply chains (EESCs) in the leather industry in an emerging economy, which implications for energy policy. A novel decision-making support approach named the ‘best-worst method’ (BWM) is employed to rank the most important CSFs. Furthermore, an interpretive structural modeling (ISM) approach and a MICMAC analysis (Matriced Impacts Croisés Multiplication Appliquée á un Classement) are undertaken in this study to depict the relative dependences and influences among the selected CSFs. The CSF ‘International pressure and scarcity of natural resources’ is identified as the most significant factor via a hybrid BWM-ISM method that may drive the leather industry to implement EESC practices and thus maintain a sustainable environmental approach. This research will be beneficial to decision makers in carrying out effective operations and improving implementation of EESC practices in the leather industry.
