A Regional Evaluation of Sustainability with Special Regard to Social Aspects
AbstractToday sustainable development is an organic part of the community policies of the European Union including regional policy. Sustainability is important not only for products and services, but also for regions. Regional evaluation of sustainability is an emerging research field. The assessment of regional social performance has not been elaborated yet. Social life cycle assessment, however, would be suitable for this task. This study aims to utilise Social Life Cycle Assessment and indicators to assess regional sustainability. To test the assessment system, this study analyses the social performance of Northern Hungary.
