Measuring Sustainability

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


This article reviews the measurement of how sustainable is the economic, social and environmental performance of different countries. The measurement of sustainability is explained and some of the evidence is evaluated. A new index of sustainability developed by FEEM is compared with some of the other indexes. The evidence suggests that sustainability scores are low in a number of developing countries, but progress is being made in some of the fast-growing ones. Policies to address sustainability, especially on the environmental side, can make major improvements in the sustainability index.
