Abstract This paper reviews the historical, conceptual and operational development of the field of sustainability from a theoretical and practical perspective. It discusses the advantages and disadvantages, omissions and additions to various sustainability approaches. These sustainability elements are combined in a hierarchical framework to enable a clearer understanding of the interrelations between the various definitional elements. Despite the mature state of developed concepts and definitions for sustainability, the multi-faceted nature of sustainability ensures that a judicious understanding of the various sustainability definitions and structures is crucial when applying or integrating sustainability in business or operational decision-making processes.
