This review first introduces the historical background for the sustainability concept development. Special reference is given to the energy resource depletion and its forecast. In the assessment of global energy resources attention is focused in on the resource consumption and its relevancy to the future demand. The recent assessment of sustainability is reflecting the normative and strategic dimension of sustainability. Special attention is devoted to the most recent development of the concept of sustainability science. A new field of sustainability science is emerging that seeks to understand the fundamental character of interactions between nature and society. With a view toward promoting research necessary to achieve such advances, an initial set of core questions for sustainability science was proposed.
