AbstractAdopting green practices in supply chains contribute towards protecting the environment. For the successful adoption of Environmentally Sustainable Supply Chain Management (ESSCM), the dimensions related to technology, strategy and policy etc., termed as hard dimensions in the scholarly literature, play a significant role. However, the independent influence of these dimensions on ESSCM has not been previously studied. Therefore, the present study aims to fill this gap and evaluate the effectiveness of these dimensions. To do this, the most significant dimensions are identified through a thorough literature review and experts’ inputs. To determine their priority and cause-effect relationship, a combined approach of Best Worst Method (BWM) and Decision-Making Trial and Evaluation Laboratory (DEMATEL) is used. The analysis indicates that ‘Total Quality Management’, and ‘Technologies for Cleaner Production’, are the most important causal dimensions and provides several insights to the decision-makers to formulate robust business strategies to the adoption of ESSCM.
