Due to growing public awareness, governmental regulations and concerns, environmental sustainability initiatives have received increasing attention among industrial decision-makers and practitioners. Employing environmental management programs can significantly minimize the waste and preserve the environment. However, papers have not much focused on exploring the interactions and interdependencies among environmental sustainability innovation factors, particularly in the context of manufacturing sector of emerging economies. To address this issue, this paper proposes a criteria decision framework, with the target of investigating the interactions among environmental sustainability innovation criteria within an emerging economy nation manufacturing sector context using Z-based DEMATEL technique. According to the findings, “designing products for being reusable and energy-efficient” is the most critical criterion and requires a considerable attention for successfully implementing environmental sustainability innovation. This paper significantly helps industrial managers and experts in emerging economies to better understand environmental sustainability innovation, employ environmental sustainability innovation practices in their supply chains and shift their industry toward sustainable development.
