Today and years to come, one of the most challenging problems of the global economy is to keep maintaining and developing the correct balance of the environment from which resources are extracted. For this, we believe that Information Systems and formal methodologies for sustainability measures definition are related to decision making and management control. In this work, a methodology as a means to determining and implementing reliable, understandable, relevant and accessible sustainability indicators for the interaction between the environment, the economy and the society will be examined. Sustainability measures were implemented in a Decision Support System using a multidimensional modeling based architecture. The proposed methodology for indicators definition and the Information System were successfully applied to the Chilean salmon industry. The usage of the indicators and the stakeholders' opinions over the resulting Information System, proved that the proposed Decision Support System is of great importance to the sustainable development of the Chilean salmon industry. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.
