Abstract
The primary purpose of this study is to find out the sustainability level in Mauritius. The study also focused on the CSDI model to some extend to get an idea on how sustainability is assessed at company level. Nevertheless, in our case, we have tried to extend this concept to country level. Moreover, raw data were collected from the Central Statistic Office and all the computation was carried out through the model Furthermore, the results revealed that Mauritius is a sustainable country, but there is still more room for improvements and that we are not very far from becoming a model sustainable country for many developed countries across the world. Finally, the sustainability index has been carried out using a scenario analysis method which revealed that sustainability is applied to in Mauritius
