We are what we measure.   It's time to measure what we want to be.

Definitions of Sustainability

There may be as many definitions of sustainability and sustainable development as there are groups trying to define it. All the definitions have to do with:
  • Living within the limits
  • Understanding the interconnections among economy, society, and environment
  • Equitable distribution of resources and opportunities

However, different ways of defining sustainability are useful for different situations and different purposes. For this reason, various groups have created definitions of:

  • Sustainability and sustainable development
  • Sustainable community and society
  • Sustainable business and production
  • Sustainable agriculture

If you know of a definition that would be useful, please let us know and we will add it as time allows.
