Green consideration has been one of the most crucial issues for environmental protection due to increasing consumption level, and ill effect of the industrial developments, as well. For overcoming the negative impacts of the industrial processes, supplier selection can be seen as an important part of the green supply chain management concept due to its long term effects. On the other hand, many companies bestow a privilege on their partners if they have green consideration thanks to the positive perception of the customers. In this paper, a literature review is done for expressing what criteria effect the decision environment to build a better relationship with partners, and a criteria list for green supplier selection for textile industry is proposed in a hierarchic structure which is useful to integrate multi criteria decision analysis. The proposed criteria list is formed by eight main criteria and thirty one sub-criteria which consists green and also non-green criteria what are cost, delivery, quality, service, strategic alliance, pollution control, green product and environmental management.
