    Abstract

    This paper develops a new approach to sustainable planning of WEEE recycling innovation strategies for meeting the best sustainable innovation interests of a WEEE management company. A fuzzy multi-attribute decision making algorithm is used to evaluate the to-be implemented innovation strategies in terms of their readiness levels on identified sustainability-related key risk factors (SRFs) under the environmental, economic, and social dimensions. A series of optimal weighting models are developed to determine the optimal weights for the three sustainability dimensions and their associated SRFs, with consideration of the company's subjective weighting preferences under its current operational settings. In practice, the sustainable planning approach provides WEEE management companies with a proactive mechanism for planning their innovation implementation in a sustainable manner. An empirical study on a leading WEEE management company is conducted to illustrate how the approach works.
