Abstract: While examining environmental policies in Iran, this study assessed their effects on sustainability strategies which any organisation is required to adhere and then measured their relationship with technological innovation in manufacturing organisations in Iran by listing practical factors on green supply chain management. Results of fuzzy Delphi, internal environmental management, eco-design, investment recovery, customer collaboration, and green procurement were confirmed as constituents of the green supply chain. For the study's hypotheses, a structural equations modelling was used. In conclusion, the suggested model consisted of three hypotheses and ten sub-hypotheses. Structural equation modelling with PLS was used for estimating path coefficients (beta) and testing the hypotheses. Bootstrap test was used to calculate T-value. According to inferential statistic findings by analysing the questionnaire, the hypotheses were confirmed, and sub-hypotheses were confirmed except two hypotheses (positive effect of sustainability strategies on green procurement and positive effect of green procurement on technological innovation).
