What is Sustainability?
Sustainability is defined by the United Nations’ Brundtland Commission as “meeting the needs of the present without sacrificing the ability of future generations to meet their needs.” There are three dimensions or “pillars” of sustainability: social, economic and environmental. All three are inter-connected, and all three are equally important.
