Sustainability – What?

If you are wondering what sustainability actually means because you see the term appear in all sorts of places and situations, well, you are not alone. Basically, the meaning of sustainability and sustainable development depends on the context in which those terms are used.

Definitions of sustainability in a business context can be quite different to definitions of sustainability or sustainable development, say, in an urban development context.For some people, sustainability is about protecting the natural environment and environmental resources for future generations. Others link it to social justice or never-ending economic prosperity.

Very broadly (own words), sustainability is the art to live well and to prosper without limiting the ability of others (neighbors, community, stakeholders, but also future generations) to live well and to prosper.
