Abstract
Today, sustainability indicators are widely used as an effective tool to help decision makers and policy makers in making effective decisions. One of the important indicators of countries' development is their status in terms of environmental performance or environmental development. This index compares the situation of countries in terms of environment and emphasizes the two main goals of environmental protection, namely reducing environmental pressures on human health and improving the condition of ecosystems, as well as proper management of natural resources. Since sustainable economic development requires the proper use of natural and human resources and the preservation of the environment, therefore protecting the environment and preventing its degradation is one of the most important challenges in any society. In the process of economic growth and moving towards economic development, production and exports have increased and environmental degradation has increased in many countries. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to the fact that in the process of growth of production and exports, the environment is not seriously damaged and environmental performance indicators do not deteriorate. In the present study, an attempt has been made to prioritize environmental development indicators in the Iranian economy using the opinions of experts in the food industry section. The data collection tool was the questionnaire and the study population included exporters and producers of food products, executive experts related to export and production, academic experts and private sector organizations in food industry. Fuzzy network analysis method was used to prioritize the factors affecting environmental development indicators in the Iranian economy. According to the results, the effects of health, air quality, water quality and health status are the most important factors affecting the index of environmental pressures on human health and factors such as climate and energy, water resources and air pollution are the most important factors in the index of improving ecological status and natural resource management.

Key words: Environmental Development Indicators, Iranian Economy, Fuzzy Network Analysis Process, Prioritization, Food Industry
