Sustainability factors play critical role for long-Term achievement of a supply chain management and purchasing process becomes more complicated with social and environmental pressures. Managing supplier selection process is a necessary step for companies seeking to manage their corporate legitimacy and reputations. Data envelopment analysis (DEA) has been widely used for supplier selection problems. In this paper, we propose a new super-efficiency method for evaluating sustainability of suppliers in the presence of dual-role factors and volume discounts. We show that enhanced Russell model (ERM) fails to present a complete ranking of suppliers. Our new model presents a complete ranking and also preserves properties of the ERM. Capabilities of our proposed method are shown using a couple of examples. A case study is presented to illustrate our proposed approach. The proposed method is used to select the best sustainable suppliers.
