PLASENCIA-SOLER, Juan Antonio; MARRERO-DELGADO, Fernando; BAJO-SANJUAN, Anna María  and  NICADO-GARCIA, Miriam. Models to assess organizational sustainability. estud.gerenc. [online]. 2018, vol.34, n.146, pp.63-73. ISSN 0123-5923.

The complex nature of organizational sustainability has challenged researchers, scholars and international agencies and institutions when searching for a model. This is reflected in the wide variety of frameworks, methodologies and methods existing in current literature. This research study approaches the models that aim to assess enterprise sustainability relying on sustainable development principles as well as on ethical theories of social responsibility in the organizational realm. In order to achieve this goal, this paper identifies the main distinctive features and modifications introduced to each model since its emergence, which allows to classify them into three groups, and finally points out its advantages and disadvantages.

Keywords : business ethics; corporate sustainability; corporate social responsibility.
