What is sustainability?

 

Sustainability has many different meanings in different fields. One of the first definitions comes from a report by the World Commission on Environment and Development:

"Sustainability is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."

People, planet & profit

 

As time goes by, it's becoming more and more apparent that we need to start changing quickly if we want to fight climate change and leave a liveable planet for generations to come.
