More than three decades ago, economic growth was one of the main priorities, leaving behind environmental and social issues. Focusing only in the economic development, social and environmental damages arose. Sustainable development was born to integrate the three aspects in order to mitigate the effects. Nowadays, companies around the world frequently apply decisions which affect society and the environment around them. This influence could be caused directly by their business operations, or in an indirect way through the value chain. Day after day people awareness on consumer protection, rights and impacts of the products that they buy is increasing. Integrating life cycle thinking in decisions making of a business is one of the ways to reach a sustainable development in the product chain and also in the rest of the life cycle of the product. For achieving a sustainable world trough the three pillars, more work have to be done in all the levels. Towards changes in people mind will modify the business and political trajectories.
