After the Olympic Games of 2004, Greece was at the center of dramatic situations and faced serious economic and social problems, especially at the beginning of the 2010s. Initially, the economic and social crisis along with the memorandums and then the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic affected the development of the Greek economy at both macro and micro levels. In recent years, many efforts have been made for the overall recovery and growth of the Greek economy. Seven sub-categories have been formulated by the Greek Ministry of Development and Investment, including multiple modules of modules and actions for the development of the economy. One of these sub-categories refers to sustainable development. Public policies such as the Sustainable Development Goals, Climate Change, Adaptation Planning and others are regarded as key formative actions for any country, let alone Greece. Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are applied to monitor policies relating to sustainable development. These targets are the monitoring and key performance indicators of the development strategy for public policies, whose targets monitor and attest to the development strategy course of public policies. The aim of this article is to present, through literature review, the KPIs that are applied domestically and show how they will contribute to the dynamic growth of the Greek economy. The results have turned out to be significantly important and could contribute to the further integration of specialized KPIs in the country's development via the use and exploitation of the natural environment. The development of such secondary KPIs could prove to be a challenge for the environment and climate change disciplines. The topic is crucial and the context of Critical Success Factors (CSF) and KPIs can be used by public and private sector employees, the academic community, and every researcher/theorist working on the specific topic.
