Summary/Abstract: Awareness of current and potential conflict of interest between economic growth and environmental preservation has resulted in the concept of sustainable development. Sustainable development is a multidimensional concept that encompasses economic, social, ecological, technological and ethical perspective. From such a definition, it can be concluded that the objectives of sustainable development are characterized by a high degree of conflicting. Furthermore, the terms "development" and "sustainability" in themselves are contradictory terms. In this sense, multi-criteria optimization is the appropriate approach in solving the conflicts in sustainability on both micro and macro level. The aim of this paper is to define some important economic and environmental criteria relevant to the problems of multi-objective programming, as well as their major conflicts.
