  • Environmental Sustainability = The ability to maintain rates of renewable resource harvest, pollution creation, and non-renewable resource depletion that can be continued indefinitely; Focus on the environment, natural resources, and energy.

  • Social Sustainability = The ability to build and support healthy communities that support current and future generations; Focus on education, equality, peace, and justice. In a business context this implies enforcing basic human rights, labor rights and corporate governance.
