This paper aims to assess Sustainable Economy (SE) features and validate them by using sustainability experts residing in Qatar to suggest an expanded and improved definition of SE. Fifteen features of SE have been identified via a comparative literature review and validated by sustainability experts in Qatar. The study significantly strengthens and validates the features of SE and provides analysis of some of these features by the authors. The paper suggests that SE should be defined as “a value-based, dynamic, and balanced economic system that meets the needs of all living species today while remaining within ecological and social boundaries, without compromising the system’s capacity to meet all future needs of all living species”. This is the only paper that uses Qatari experts to research SE features. The limitation of the research is the inclusion of a small sample size of experts within Qatar due to the limited number of experts in the field of sustainability and their willingness to participate.
