Abstract: Nowadays, the global competitive scenario plays a critical role in the success of the Indian manufacturing sector. The present study argues the role of dynamic eco-innovation practices in order to achieve sustainability in providing the manufacturing competitiveness in India. The outcomes of the present study attempt to express core categories of eco-innovation practices in India. The study identifies 11 eco-innovation enablers. Manufacturing acknowledges a technical target in the form of both product and process, eco-innovation has a pivotal role to attain sustainable development in ecology, economy and social club. The study involves 100 steel manufacturing companies across India. Interpretive structural modelling and fuzzy MICMAC analysis have been used to analyse the relationships among these enablers, and to find out driving and dependence power. This analysis serves to identify, which enabler is performing as the most leading one and supporting other enablers to enhance the manufacturing competitiveness in India.
