Abstract
This paper shows a method based upon multi-criteria analysis for deriving a ranking of a number of eucalyptus plantations in terms of sustainability. The sustainability is characterized by considering 11 indicators of different nature (ecological, economical, social, etc). These indicators are applied to 30 private forest systems (plantations) basically defined by eucalyptus stands, although with presence of other species. In this way, a 30×11 pay-off matrix is initially obtained. Once the elements of the matrix have been normalized, and one indicator has been dropped due to correlation issues, several models based on compromise programming and goal programming are formulated. By solving these models a ranking of the 30 forest systems is obtained. On the other hand, the possible links between the certification of the plantations and their sustainability is established. Finally, the analysis could be extended by introducing the preferences of different stakeholders, what in practical terms involves attaching different preferential weights to the indicators used
