Circular Economy Reinforcement to Diminish GHG Emissions: A grey DEMATEL Approach

Somesh Agarwal, Mohit Tyagi, R. K. Garg


GHG emissions cause climate change and environmental degradation. The proposed research examines the role of CE in reducing GHG emissions to achieve sustainable goals and an evergreen future by recirculating materials and products. The present work identified thirteen essential CE strategies from a literature review and expert perspective to reduce GHG emissions in India's rubber industry. To provide a comprehensive explanation of the problem, the identified CE strategies were ranked by importance and categorised using the grey DEMATEL (G-DEMATEL) approach. The study offers managers and policymakers a work plan to reduce the carbon footprint.
