Becoming a company categorized as an excellent sustainable enterprise is the goal of many companies in this era of sustainability demands. Many companies are trying to achieve this, but few have lost their way because there is a scarcity of clear and comprehensive indicators. This paper examines redefining sustainable enterprises and compiling a list of enterprise sustainability indicators based on a literature review. This study's integrative literature study method consists of a systematic literature review and a complimentary article. To the best of our knowledge, this literature review is the first to be conducted in the context of sustainable enterprise in Indonesia regarding various aspects of sustainability. In order to support a contemporary definition of sustainable enterprise, a comprehensive set of indicators should be developed. This paper presents a redefinition of sustainable enterprise and a list of sustainable enterprise insulators. At the end of this paper, several managerial implications and future agendas are also discussed.
