Sustainable development is an important and strategic priority for global nations which requires simultaneously satisfying multiple conflicting objectives involving social, economic, energy, and environmental constraints. Multi-criteria decision analysis using a goal programming approach, is a popular and widely used technique to study real world problems involving conflicting objectives due to modelling simplicity and elegance. In this paper we propose a goal programming model that integrates efficient allocation of labour resources to achieve sustainability objectives relating to economic, energy and environmental goals of the United Arab Emirates by the year 2030. The proposed solution provides mathematical and economic justification with critical insights to prioritize areas for strategic planning and resource allocation to develop and implement amenable strategies for sustainability.
