Green Government Procurement: Decision-Making with Rough Set, TOPSIS, and VIKOR Methodologies
Public and private organizations have started to respond to various stakeholder and market pressures to improve their environmental and social sustainability performance. Government agencies represent one of the most pertinent stakeholders. Government stakeholder pressures to encourage greater organizational sustainability include coercive measures such as penalties, fines, and removal of license to operate if organizations are unable to meet specific regulatory requirements. Yet, noncoercive approaches are also available to government agencies and regulators for encouraging the greening of organizations and markets.
