Against the background of the energy crisis, shortage of skilled workers, demographic change and other drivers, sustainable development is also becoming increasingly important for industrial companies. In this respect, production planning and control has an enormous influence on relevant objectives. In classical approaches of production planning and control as presented in this paper, economic-oriented objectives are taken into account to a large extent in decision making. This paper demonstrates that besides these classical models, a variety of approaches exist to influence ecological and social targets through production planning. These different models are assigned to sustainability areas and outlined by exemplary literature sources. Further research is needed, for instance, in the joint consideration of sustainability criteria along different planning levels and sustainable dimensions.
