This paper attempts to solve the challenges of attaining the goals of the National Agenda for Sustainable Development by means of the systems transdisciplinary approach concept and methodology. To achieve this, the author expands the existing concept of chemical evolution and describes natural mechanisms of directed transformation of the planetary matter. The paper reveals the meaning of cyclic recurrence of the development of supercontinents in geological history of the planet. This has led to the formation of the planetary matter required for further active transformation of biological objects, which are supposed to take part in that transformation. The author assumes and substantiates that stable development is controlled by the planetary and extraplanetary objective organizing compounds, which present effective mechanisms of appraisal and compulsion of objects of living and non-living matter to strictly denote results of activity and interactions. The results of long term and medium term modeling of the development of modern society was also shown. The conclusion of this paper describes the possibility of using the methodology of systems transdisciplinary approach in organizing sustainable development since 2016.
