How to measure human development SDI or HDI ?

Sustainable Development Index (SDI) measures the ecological efficiency of human development, recognizing that development must be achieved within planetary boundaries. It was created to update the Human Development Index (HDI) for the ecological realities of the Anthropocene.

So here is the question should development of a country be only measured against HDI ?

Brings back the socialist vs capitalist development model debate.

Clearly the socialist model was less aggressive and less damaging to environment, it not only focused on factories and industries for profit it stopped them when it replaced a large population or when they were setup in economically fragile zones.
