This article aims to provide theoretical basis for sustainability in businesses and evaluate the level of sustainability of some enterprises in Europe and to provide the theoretical basis for sustainability in business and conduct the analysis of levels of sustainability of four enterprises based in Lithuania and Ukraine.
