Understanding sustainability






More than just a buzzword

What does sustainability mean and why should I care? Sustainability is integrating economic, environmental and social considerations into decision-making to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.


You should care because the world you live in is taking strain from the pressure we are putting on it.There are lots of things that the Earth does without making a big deal of it, and we tend to take these gifts for granted.

Provisioning services such as the production of food, clean water, pharmaceuticals and energy. Regulating services such as carbon sequestration, and the control of climate and disease. Supporting services such as nutrient cycles and crop pollination. Cultural services such as spiritual and recreational benefits. Humans are consuming more natural resources than the Earth can produce – and this equation is getting worse every day – already we are in ecological overdraft and are rapidly reducing the Earth’s ability to render these ecosystem services. According to WWF, if we continue with business as usual, by 2030 we will need two planets to keep up with humanity’s demand for goods and services.
Soon – probably in your lifetime – the quality of life for all living things, us included, will reduce significantly as the planet reshuffles its resources and tries to keep the web of life intact. Later (do you have or plan to have children and grandchildren?) things that you take for granted will disappear – clean air and water, bee-pollinated food (many fruits, vegetables, nuts and grains), forests and wild fish. Disease and natural disasters will be the order of the day, affecting commerce and political stability. In short, the world as you know it will cease to exist.

So you should care (lots). But we can turn this depressing scenario around and enjoy lifestyles that are both fulfilling and sustainable.
Of course, yes. It is purely a matter of choice. The solution lies in taking responsibility for your patch – business and personal – and becoming part of the solution. Once you are in control of your patch, expand your field of influence to your friends, family and colleagues. Environmentally sound practices save money in the medium and long term. So educate yourself and start taking small steps to becoming a sustainable person or business.
