Creating index for sustainability/sustainable development in an industrial estate

Abstract

Creating an index for sustainability/sustainable development (S/SD) is important and urgent to be formed although there are a lot of researchers from academicians and industrialists talking about the S/SD. The main challenge is estimating the S/SD index among different industries in an industrial estate. The main objective of this paper is to present a framework to model and assess an index of S/SD within an industrial estate with a group of different industries. Sustainability indexes for each assessed value (indicators, aspects, dimensions, industry type and whole region) will be normalized, evaluated and weighted. An illustrative example is used to illustrate the proposed framework.
