Abstract
From recent years ago, sustainability has become a relevant issue for the forestry industries along the world. However, its characterization is not well defined because sustainability is an abstract concept that is difficult to conceptualize and measure. Generally a set of indicators has been described in order to make easy the comparison, in terms of sustainability, between industries or industrial sectors. However, some issues regarding the integration of these indicators are not still well defined in the literature. In this paper a synthetic index is proposed in order to compare the sustainability of seventeen European forest industries in several countries by using a binary goal programming approach. These indicators embrace economic, social an environment considerations and have been quantified by using EUROSTAT data for three forest industries following NACE classification; that is, timber, paper and the more closed NACE code to wooden furniture at the same level
