Abstract: In recent decades, increase in environmental awareness has motivated the manufacturers towards minimising the use of exhaustible resources. Green manufacturing focuses on manufacturing technologies and initiatives that optimise energy usage and resource conservation. Green manufacturing aims to minimise environmental impact of manufacturing activities. The central objective of green paradigm is the combination of economic and ecological efficiency. This study aims to identify the key enablers for green manufacturing. The study uses an integration of decision making trial and evaluation laboratory (DEMATEL) and analytic network process (ANP). The analysis reflects the interdependencies among the enablers of green manufacturing. The results indicates that customer demand, implementing eco innovation and availability of collaborative suppliers are the top three enablers for the transition towards green manufacturing.
Keywords: green manufacturing; enablers; DEMATEL; analytic network process; ANP.
