The problem of green supplier selection in IoT (Internet of things) has attracted more and more attention from scholars. Thus, this paper, aiming at the problem of enterprise green supplier selection, uses the utility conversion method to pre-process the data, and proposes a comprehensive method for determining the weight of experts. Finally, the effectiveness of the method is further tested by the empirical analysis.
