In today's dynamic and uncertain business environment, every manufacturing or service firm does outsource activity in the form of procurement of raw materials, semi-finished and finished goods, technology etc. Therefore, suppliers are the key players to help the firms to be competitive in the market. Firms are dependent on the suppliers to meet the customer demands. Total dependence on a single supplier may create huge problems to that firm. Natural disaster, new political rules etc. happening at supplier side may disrupt or seize the flow of supply to firm. Consequently, selecting suitable set of sustainable suppliers is a crucial activity for any organization. In this research, sustainable suppliers are selected based on set of criteria, cost, risk, flexibility and environmental responsibility. A novel approach involving fuzzy numbers, which make it easier to capture the decision maker’s subjective assessment related to supplier selection criteria, are applied to make accurate and consistent sustainable supplier selection decisions. The proposed approach follows the two-stage decision making process. In the first stage, selection of suitable sustainable suppliers and splitting order among them takes place. In the second stage, the impact of order splitting strategy on supply chain performance is examined. The efficacy and intricacy of the developed approach is validated using a real-life case.
