The apprehensions around the climate change and energy crisis have led to the emergence of the need for sustainability analysis. The subject of sustainability is now of wider inclusivity as it can be applied to almost any field of study. There are different approaches to model sustainability; however the systems approach is the focus of consideration in this paper. The proposed model for sustainability incorporates the use of neural networks to develop a complex adaptive system. The complexity of the system is simplified using influence diagrams or knowledge management techniques.
