Sustainability is a word often used, but not always understood. Often quoted is the definition from the UN World Commission on Environment and Development: 'sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.' In the charter for the UCLA Sustainability Committee, sustainability is defined as: “the physical development and institutional operating practices that meet the needs of present users without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs, particularly with regard to use and waste of natural resources. Sustainable practices support ecological, human, and economic health and vitality. Sustainability presumes that resources are finite, and should be used conservatively and wisely with a view to long-term priorities and consequences of the ways in which resources are used.” In simplest terms, sustainability is about our children and our grandchildren, and the world we will leave them.
Here are some additional resources defining sustainability:
