Abstract

Eco-Efficiency Indicator (EEI) is a measure of economic values with respect to environmental impacts. EEI provides indices for managers to make decisions and also helps to measure trends in economics as well as environmental sustainability in business. However, a weakness of EEI is that the measurement units vary widely. This makes standardization of units nearly impossible. Using incompatible units might change decision making, and lead to the selection of less environmentally conscious processes. Hence a standardized method of modified EEI is introduced by embedding Eco-Indicators and Cost of Quality for more accurate decision making.
