Relevance. Insufficient elaboration of methodological foundations of sustainable development concept predetermines ambiguous conceptual-categorical framework and, consequently, imperfect methodological support for the possibilities of its realization.
Research aims to develop methodological provisions for sustainable development concept as regards the determination of relationships between the types of sustainability and approaches to their realization.
Methodology. The analysis of the ways and distinctive features of sustainable development concept formation. The development of the author’s variant of systematizing the approaches to various types of sustainable development realization. Results. The article considers certain moments of sustainable development concept formation and the special characteristics of approaches to its realization in different countries, the results of the sustainable development problem discussion at international conferences and summits, the evaluation of the degree of fulfilling the goals concerning switching to a new development model. Recommendations concerning sustainability types selection are systematized, the criterion of classification is substantiated – natural capital depletion and possibility of its substitution by physical (artificial) capital. Sustainability classification with a greater detailed elaboration is considered according to R. K. Terner. The article generalizes and analyses information characterizing methodological approaches to the realization of the main provisions of sustainability development concept: anthropocentrism, eco and biocentrism, their interrelation with scenario approaches – scientistic and conservationist according to B. M. Mirkin and L. G. Naumova. The features of the approaches are revealed which are complementary to the common ones: noospheric and scenario-centrist. Author’s version is proposed for the given notions integration, relation estimation between man- nature interaction character and scenarios of human development towards the creation of sustainable development society and their attitude towards the realization of different types of sustainable development.
Results. The obtained results, improving the methodology of sustainable development, ensure the elaboration of more solid methodological approaches to the realization of a new development model.
