Abstract: Due to increased market competition in recent years, Indian plastic processing industries have realized their prospects of effective management of the supply chain to achieve cost-efficient operations with environment and social sustainability that can only be achieved through continuous improvement techniques. Lean tools and technique for managing the supply chain looks like an inevitable trend in enhancing the performance of plastic processing industries; while, performance evaluation is crucial in green supply chain implementation. Based on the management of green supply chain attributes, nineteen key performance metrics are prioritized and classified among four performance categories of economic, environmental, social and health & safety. A fuzzy-based method of evaluation of performance is proposed in this paper to assess the performance of lean tool based management of plastic supply chain. Supervisors of supply chain can anticipate aggregate performance of the cost and environment sustainable plastic supply chain. Sustainable strategies could be managed by considering dissimilar weights for diverse supply chain state of affairs.
