Summary/Abstract: The paper addresses sustainable development and shows the capacity of the Romanian market to achieve the goals set in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The new Agenda focuses on a holistic approach to sustainable development in order to achieve global development. Sustainable development is addressed nationally and internationally because businesses do not exist in isolation. Business is a complex network that interacts and completes itself. The use of material, human, financial and informational resources by companies contributes to the assessment of the organisational capacity for sustainable development. Based on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 associated targets, the paper presents a general assessment of Romania's situation on the three dimensions: economic, social and environmental. Following this evaluation, we can conclude that the Romanian market needs to be aligned with the requirements of the European Union, and the difficulties encountered in various directions must be improved by defining strategic directions in line with international objectives.
