Description The objective of this paper was to understand how sustainability can be analyzed and explained from what is studied by the economics of transaction costs and by the theory of measurement costs. Therefore, a bibliographic, exploratory and descriptive research was carried out. The results were able to demonstrate that sustainability and its own theory are continuously abstract for understanding within institutions, being the same for when applying the theory of transaction costs. Property rights are related to natural components and their governance structure focused on environmental relations. The development of new economies and the theory of measurement costs seek to give measured value to the attributes of transactions related to sustainability. This analysis could eliminate the limited rationality of the agents, consequently possible opportunistic behaviors and develop means of protecting the environment.
O objetivo deste ensaio foi compreender como a sustentabilidade pode ser analisada a partir do que é estudado pela economia dos custos de transação e pela teoria dos custos de mensuração. Para tanto, foi feita uma pesquisa bibliográfica, exploratória e descritiva. Os resultados demonstraram que a sustentabilidade e sua própria teoria são continuamente abstratas para entendimento das instituições, sendo o mesmo para quando aplicada a teoria dos custos de transação. Os direitos de propriedade são relacionados a componentes naturais e a sua estrutura de governança voltada a relações ambientais. O desenvolvimento das novas economias e a teoria dos custos de mensuração buscam dar valor mensurado aos atributos das transações relacionadas à sustentabilidade. Tal análise poderia eliminar a racionalidade limitada dos agentes, consequentemente possíveis comportamentos oportunistas e desenvolver meios palpáveis de proteção do meio ambiente.
