Abstract


In the current economic climate, for many businesses it is generally no longer sufficient to pursue exclusively economic interests. Instead, integrating ecological and social goals into the corporate targets is becoming ever more important. In the scientific literature there are many approaches to evaluate sustainability. However, it was determined that none of the present approaches can be used to evaluate the sustainability of a factory and its stakeholders at one time and propose measures to use potentials. Therefore this article describes the conceptual framework of an approach to evaluate the sustainability using a maturity model. This model is based on the System Dynamics Method. With this approach companies are enabled to evaluate their sustainability regarding all dimensions of sustainability and their stakeholders.
