  • Classic Definition of Sustainability Acting with sustainability means balancing economy, ecology, and equity. Most organizations or corporations, when committing to sustainability, apply these three considerations to their products and services:          Economy. How do we create profitability and sustained economic growth? Most enterprises start here.          Ecology. How do our company’s actions impact the natural and human environments?          Equity. How do we provide for greater good both within the company and the community at large?
