                         recent years, mainly due to the concern about climate change. In 
                         Brazil, the land area under sugarcane cultivation has expanded in 
                         unprecedented ways to meet the increasing ethanol demand of both 
                         the domestic and international markets. S{\~a}o Paulo is the 
                         Brazilian state with the highest production of sugarcane, and the 
                         expansion of this activity can impact both the environment and 
                         society. The purpose of this paper was to assess and map the 
                         sensitivity of the areas used for sugarcane cultivation in 
                         S{\~a}o Paulo state and to provide a holistic approach to 
                         sugarcane production from the sustainability perspective by 
                         integrating indicators of the environmental, social and economic 
                         spheres without focusing on one single element. Five environmental 
                         indicators (related to water resources, slope, environmental 
                         conservation areas, land use and agricultural potential) and six 
                         socioeconomic indicators (related to employment, income, 
                         education, gender equality, child labor and forced labor) were 
                         selected for the analysis. The methodology comprised the 
                         Categorical Principal Components Analysis (CATPCA) technique and 
                         the spatialization of results in a Geographic Information System. 
                         The resulting maps of sensitivity show the patterns of the three 
                         retained principal components and provide an information-rich tool 
                         that the government can use in decision making, policy formulation 
                         and the integrated planning of land use, thereby enabling the 
                         identification of both hotspots and which issues should be
