"development" means sales growth for. Its not precise and measurable, so no one can agree on what it means. The early environmental movement never asked these questions, because most environmentalists are altruists. This forms the goal. Furthermore, development means economic growth to most nations, especially the developing ones. Social and economic sustainability depend on environmental sustainability. It was designed to deliberately lead problem solvers astray, because guess who "development" benefits most, even more than developing nations? On the contrary, it was heavily skewed toward issues affecting the more developed countriesair and water pollution and deterioration of the urban environment. For me, and I hope you too, the right priority is the one embodied in the definition at the top of this page.
Abstract : In this thesis, we present some examples of sustainability indicators and tools for sustainable product development that can be used to facilitate a transition of the society towards sustainability. Which is just what happened. Copyright of a dissertation is retained by the author and The University of Edinburgh. Our definition, sustainability is the ability to continue a defined behavior indefinitely. Why large for-profit corporations, of course. If most of the world expects and even demands economic growth as a priority over solving the sustainability problem, then how can the sustainability problem possibly be solved? Social sustainability is the ability of a social system, such as a country, to function at a defined level of social well being indefinitely.
