ABSTRACT
This paper has two parts. In the first part, using the data from the Human Development Reports of the United Nations we will analyse the Environmental sustainability in EEA Countries by using complex indicators. HDR comprises, at the moment, 187 countries ant territories, and all the European countries are in the top 100 as far as Human development is concerned. Their position is due to the fact that they are concerned with environmental protection and strive to find solutions for a harmonius sustainable development. In the second part of the paper, using the same data and using the results from the analyses of the first part we will present the essential aspects of the sustainable development through the perspective of the way in which Romania wood industry organisations understand to account for the accepted European social responsibility values.
