Since the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, the issues of sustainability at the international, national and regional level have become a top priority for national governments, business leaders and NGOs. Sustainability Analysis: An Interdisciplinary Approach is the result of collective reflection by an international group of academics from Canada, France, Norway, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UK. It was inspired by the interdisciplinary discussions started in St Petersburg, Russia at the conference Globalisation, New Economy, and the Environment: Business and Society Challenges for Sustainable Development, organized by the editors of this volume under the auspices of the International Society for Ecological Economics in 2005.
