    Abstract

    Green packaging plays an important role for organizations to achieve sustainable economic and environmental performance. However, introducing green packaging can bring various potential challenges to firms and supply chains. There is a need to develop a systematic and effective decision support tool to help industrial practitioners to evaluate various eco-packaging options. This paper proposes a comprehensive decision making methodology based on application of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and a hybrid Multiple Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) approach to support a more rational eco-packaging selection decision.
