The best way is through the library's databases.  For this example let's use Business Source Complete.

Once you are in Business Source Complete, look at the top menu on the left and click on "Thesaurus."

Scroll down a little bit and look for "Browsing:  Business Thesaurus" and a search box.  Type "Sustainable Development" into the search box, check "Relevancy Ranked" and then search.

It turns out that Sustainable Development is a subject term in the database.  Return to the advanced search screen and type "Sustainable Development" into a search box.  From the drop-down menu to the right of the search box choose "Subject Terms."  You can also choose a date range and whether you want to search scholarly articles.

This search will pull up all of the articles in the database with the subject of Sustainable Development.  At this point you should consider additional search terms to narrow down your search.
