Sustainability Defined

The concept of sustainability has been touched on in previous blogs. No doubt it’s a complex idea. However, a little web surfing revealed a useful graphic that helps define what it means to be sustainable.

The notion of sustainability is focused on balancing environmental, economic and social concerns in order to “meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” (United Nations World Commission on Environment and Development).

The illustration above is from the Greenguard Environmental Institute’s website.
