There were discussed and analyzed D. I. Mendeleyev's works in the field of mineralogy, geology, oil and coal mining, investigation of the Arctic, research in the problems of national education, agriculture; gunpowder; economy, aeronautics. It is shown that Mendeleyev's works are conformable to realities of our days, that the great scientist warned against unreasonable use of natural resources, suggesting gasification of coals, proved that it is necessary to modify ways of production, transportation, petroleum refining; worried about careful use of the soil. He wrote about necessity to equip Russia, keeping and developing its human potential. It is possible to claim that Mendeleyev was the forerunner of the modern ideas of sustainable development.
