What is sustainability?

According to the United Nations, sustainability can be defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. This definition, often attributed to the Brundtland Commission's report "Our Common Future" in 1987, highlights the interconnectedness of social, economic, and environmental systems. Sustainability encompasses practices and policies that seek to balance economic growth, social equity, and environmental protection to ensure a better quality of life for current and future generations. It involves responsible resource management, environmental stewardship, social inclusion, and economic prosperity, all aimed at creating a more resilient and equitable world for everyone.
