The article scrutinizes the Welsh Government's proposals for a Sustainable Development Bill and examines specifically the nature of the duty that is to be imposed on organizations delivering public services in Wales to incorporate sustainable development into their decision-making. The Sustainable Development Bill is the culmination of the Welsh Government's attempt to discharge this obligation. It is the end point of a number of policy initiatives put forward by the Welsh Ministers aimed at improving the wellbeing of the people of Wales. The notion of sustainable development that the ministers have adopted is very much couched in terms of wellbeing - economic, social, cultural and environmental. Otherwise there is a danger that the duty could be discharged without any visible or tangible impact on sustainable development. The consolidated responses documents recently released by the Welsh Government suggest that many other respondents are also concerned that progress to outcomes' should be assessed.
