Resumen

La naturaleza compleja de la sostenibilidad organizacional ha desafiado a los investigadores, académicos, organismos e instituciones internacionales en la búsqueda de un modelo, muestra de esto es la gran variedad de marcos de trabajo, metodologías y métodos existentes en la literatura actual. La presente investigación abarca el estudio de los modelos para evaluar la sostenibilidad empresarial enmarcados en principios de desarrollo sostenible y teorías éticas de la responsabilidad social en el nivel empresarial. Para lograr lo anterior son identificadas las principales características distintivas y modificaciones de cada modelo desde su surgimiento, lo que permite su clasificación en tres grupos, para luego identificar sus ventajas y desventajas.
