This study individuates the determinates of the farms’ sustainability following the approach based on the concept of sustainable value formulated by Figge and Hann (2004), which integrates the environmental, economic and social components into a single monetary indicator that takes into account the opportunity cost of the resources used defined by a benchmark. The results of the GLM regression show that almost all the structural characteristics have a significant impact on the sustainable efficiency of the farms, while the specialized farms perform better than mixed farms like the young and male farmers. Moreover, the highly significant and positive coefficients of correlation between the three components of sustainability, demonstrate that no trade-off exists between them.
Keywords: Sustainability, efficiency, ranking, capital, opportunity cost, benchmark
