Abstract: The aim of this article is to analyse the influence of supply chain risk on supply chain sustainability. Entekhab Industrial Group (EIG) has been considered for case study as the most famous home appliance producer of Iran. A structured questionnaire was used to collect data from the senior and middle managers of EIG. Data analysis was done using partial least square structural equation modelling. Findings indicate that supply chain risk has significant influence on supply chain sustainability. Other relationships among latent variables which generally relate nine dimensions to two major variables of supply chain risk and supply chain sustainability are found significant indicating appropriate explanation of major variables by the dimensions.
