In spite of the vast amount of studies on green supplier selection and related methods and approaches, the evaluation of green supply chain performance indicators aligned with classic measures is less investigated. Therefore, this research attempted to provide an integrated step by step procedure to consider both classical and green key performance indicators within the supplier selection framework. A literature survey was conducted and measures for assessing the green suppliers were extracted. Nominal Group Technique (NGT) is deployed to extract the most critical performance measures. Ten performance measures were selected as a substitute for green supplier selection. A Fuzzy Analytical Network Process (FANP) was then deployed to weight the extracted measures and determine their importance level.
