Abstract: The paper aims to identify key performance variables of green supply chain management (GSCM) practices to achieve sustainable development goals. It develops a comprehensive structural relationship between various performance variables for GSCM for sustainability in Indian automobile industries. With the help of expert opinions from industry professionals and extant literature review, fifteen key performance variables have been identified and stated as these variables attempt to achieve the sustainability goals in GSCM practices. The Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to the Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) method is employed to develop the model and then rank them. The results of this study show that supplier willingness towards GSCM, Adoption of technology advancement adoption, and top management commitment have emerged as top three key variables while organizational motivating, encouragement of sustainable product, and government support systems are identified as the bottom three parameters. It also helps to achieve the priority basis to create a greener platform in the automobile industry.
