What is sustainable development?

Simply put, Sustainable development is the organizing principle for meeting human development goals while simultaneously sustaining the ability of natural systems to provide the natural resources and ecosystem services on which the economy and society depend.

The definition as outlined by the World Commission on Environment and Development’s 1987 Brundtland report ´Our Common Future` as ‘development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs’.

There are 4 core tenants to this philosophy:
1- The Economy
2- The Environment
3- The Social/Cultural Fabric
4- Governance and Leadership

The combination of these 4 pillars gives us the concept of sustainable development.
