Abstract: The paper proposes a method to identify and rank the small and medium scale industries which are a supplier to the thermal power heavy industry, following the sustainable supply chain. A large and growing number of manufacturers are realizing substantial and financial benefits from sustainable business practices. Sustainable manufacturing also enhances employee, community and product safety. Awareness about these benefits is not much wider in the Indian Subcontinent, particularly amongst the small and medium scale industries (MSMEs). Literature papers used to identify Barriers of Sustainable Supply chain. It is fundamental to understand the drivers, barriers, and benefits influencing sustainable manufacturing initiatives. All barriers do not have the same degree of influence on the sustainable supply chain. It is, therefore, necessary to rate these barriers. These barriers can be weighed and can be ranked by using one of the Multi-Criteria Decision Making (MCDM) tools that are the Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP). Based on the ranking, important barriers are shortlisted from the present list. A survey is floated to small and medium scale industries related to thermal power where the respondent companies will be asked to rate their level of agreement on the drivers, barriers, and benefits of sustainable manufacturing initiatives. In this study three broad area of sustainable supply chain, barriers are involved those are Economic, social and Environmental barriers. This three broad area of SSCM is called Triple bottom line concept of Sustainable supply chains. Here those are analyzed and ranked.
