This study develops a double frontier fuzzy network data envelopment analysis (FNDEA) model for assessing the sustainable supply chains. The proposed FNDEA model evaluates the optimistic and pessimistic sustainability of supply chains. The α-cut approach is used to solve the proposed models. The main contribution of this paper is to develop a novel double frontier FNDEA model in the presence of undesirable outputs. To demonstrate the applicability of the proposed approach, the sustainable supply chains of tomato paste are assessed.
