Owing to the increasing importance of sustainable supply chain management (SSCM), it has received much attention from both corporate and academic over the past decade. SSCM performance evaluation plays a crucial role in organizations success. One of the practical techniques that can be used for SSCM performance assessment is network data envelopment analysis (NDEA). This paper develops a new NDEA for performance evaluation of SSCM in the presence of stochastic data. The proposed model can evaluate the efficiency of SSCM under uncertain conditions. A case study in the soft drinks industry is presented to demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed method.
