About Sustainability

There’s a lot of talk about sustainability–but what is it really? The concept of sustainability emerged in the 1970s, but was first used in the context of global resource conservation in the 1987 United Nations report titled, “Our Common Future," in which sustainable development is defined as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
