What is Sustainability?
Sustainability is a word we are seeing every day. This is about us meeting “present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs"(WECD, 1987). This doesn’t only relate to the environment, but to society and the economy as a whole.
WWF simplifies this concept further into the ideal of ‘One Planet Living’. They say that if everyone in the world lived like the average European, we would need 3 planets to live on.
It’s not only the responsibility of governments to make sure we live by these principles, but the responsibility of companies and individuals as well.
