Sustainability Definition

The most popular definition of sustainability can be traced to a 1987 UN conference. It defined sustainable developments as those that "meet present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs"(WECD, 1987).


“ onto future generations as you would have them do onto you."


“sustainable development” is sometimes referred to as development that is governed by the Triple Bottom Line: Social, Environmental, and Economic.
