In this work we adopted the Analytic Network Process (ANP) as the analytical technique of a MCDM problem that can be formulated when we have interest in to identify existing relationships between RL activities. The strategic criteria were included into the model to rate benefits (B), opportunities (O), cost (C) and risks (R). Here we present an analysis of sustainable practices identified in publishing companies, operating in Brazil. The results indicated that ANP-BOCR is an adequate method to select alternatives RL
