Abstract


        Hitherto conducted analyses of international competitiveness paid special attention to economic aspects. The article places particular emphasis on other aspects of human activity that reflect people's involvement in sustainable development as well as have effect on development potential and competitive capacity of economies. The concept of sustainable development is an interdisciplinary approach to the analysis of international competitiveness introduced by World Economic Forum (WEF). In 2012, WEF proposed a methodology for measuring so-called sustainable international competitiveness. The present paper is aimed at analyzing sustainable international competitiveness of five groups of states in order to identify factors favourable or detrimental to their competitive ability and potential. The analysis presented in the article indicates that only in the case of the richest and at the same time the most competitive (in conventional terms) countries, factors determining social and environmental sustainability have a positive effect on the competitive capacity and development potential of these states. As for the remaining four groups of countries, environmental and social factors contribute to limited competitive capacity and development potential of the economies.
