In the following paper
the instruments are introduced which are relevant for the evaluation of
sustainability effects. Evaluation systems, with whose help certain situations
can be estimated, have established themselves in social interpersonal processes,
as well as in political and professional situations.
For the evaluation of developments and trends, evaluative measuring instruments
are also necessary in environmental planning. For an effective environmental
planning aimed at sustainability, the economic and social aspects are to be
considered along with the ecological.
