Abstract: This paper discusses the current issues on sustainable development in the global market in general and focuses the initiatives particularly related to sustainable production, green innovations and practices and eco-supply chain and eco-logistics. Government, enterprises and individual initiatives towards sustainable development are explored. Cases from around the world are included to highlight the successes, initiatives and most important of all the increasing awareness of the need to be eco-friendly at all levels. Earlier research has omitted important issues when looking at the global level, and hence a holistic perspective is required to gear the effort of sustainable development and its integration to the existing 'organisational structure'. This research suggests future directions for research into the integration of sustainable development in existing organisational structures.
