Abstract: 

lot of people think that the economic development of a country is associated with its Gross Domestic Product (GDP), but GDP does not consider aspects as important as the environmental performance of a country. Nowadays, environmental issues are one of the most important aspects of the long term development of a country and play an important role in a nation’s wealth. Although the analysis of countries’ environmental performance is a very novel subject, many researchers are making a significant effort to capture its essence by testing the sustainability of regions. This paper discusses the main proposals developed in the literature that establish country rankings considering different dimensions in order to measure the sustainability or environment. This summary allows us to establish the main differences between proposals and some future research. Furthermore, we analyse the correlation and concordance between the different countries rankings established in the literature. The results reveal clear concordance between proposals.
