What is Sustainability? “Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” Our Common Future, UN Brundtland Report, 1987 “A company’s ability to achieve its business goals and increase long-term shareholder value by integrating economic, environmental and social opportunities into its business strategies.” “Symposium on Sustainability – Profiles in Leadership,” NYC, Oct. 2001
  8. 8. What is Sustainability? "the possibility that human and other life will flourish on the planet forever. It’s a definition about as far from the central notion of sustainable development as night is from day. But, to me, it represents a truer idea about what sustainability is all about. Flourishing, like many other desirable qualities, is an emergent property. It has no thing-like character. It’s like health, or liberty, or freedom: It appears only when the whole system is functioning properly." John R. Ehrenfeld, Executive Director, International Society for Industrial Ecology and Senior Research Scholar, Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies
