Greenhouse gas emissions are a major problem for the environment. One of the vital activities to reduce the emissions is including the circular economy (CE) approaches like reuse and remanufacture in disassembled products to recovering End-of-life products. In this paper, we consider CE in the disassembly of products not only to reduce CO2 emissions but also to reducing cost and improving fairness among operators. To obtain this goal, collaborative decision-making with three decision-makers (DMs) is considered to set sustainability via choosing the best EOL recovery options in the disassembly of products. Industrial managers, human resource managers, and environmental managers are three decision-makers who will collaborate to improve three indicators, which are cost, setting fairness among operators, and reducing CO2 emissions. To implement this collaboration, a mixed-integer multi-objective mathematical model is proposed and solved by Ɛ-constraint. According to the results, DMs can select the best recovery options of parts to have a trade-off among indicators.

Appendix A

Appendix A

$$\sum_{p\in P}{q}_{i}{x}_{ip1}\le {l}_{i}^{2} \quad \quad \quad \forall i\in I$$

Equations (8) confirm that a part with above a predetermined quality is not candidate to be disposed.

$$\sum_{p\in P}{q}_{i}{x}_{ip2}\ge {l}_{i}^{3} \quad \quad \quad \forall i\in I$$

Equations (9) indicate if the quality of a part is lower than a certain quality level, that part cannot be reused.

$$\sum_{p\in P}{q}_{i}{x}_{ip3}\ge {l}_{i}^{4} \quad \quad \quad \forall i\in I$$
$$\sum_{p\in P}{q}_{i}{x}_{ip3}\le 1 \quad \quad \quad \forall i\in I$$

Equations (10) and (11) define the quality of a part that has can be candidated to remanufacturing recovery operation.

$${o}_{i}=\sum_{p\in P}{q}_{i}{x}_{ip2}+1-\sum_{p\in P}{x}_{ip2} \quad \quad \quad \forall i\in I$$

Equations (12) imply to the quality of a part after reuse operation.

$$\sum_{i\in I}{o}_{i}{\alpha }_{i}\ge qm \quad \quad \quad \forall i\in I$$

Equations (13) confirm the total obtained quality should be bigger than minimum acceptable quality.
