The study aims first at clarifying the concept of sustainable development from (economic) theoretical and ethical points of view, and second at answering the question: can we talk about the practical implementation of the theory or idea, about institutionalisation in the author's interpretation based on international and national experience? The author interprets the concept of institutionalisation broadly, closer to the term of operationalisation, since this part of the research tried to cover such practical phenomena like international agreements, regulatory mechanisms, various programmes and institutions which attempted to put theory into practice.
