Sustainability refers to meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. The concept is often split into three pillars:
- Environmental: Ensuring environmental systems are balanced and that natural resources are consumed at a rate where they can replenish themselves
- Economic: Enabling communities around the world to maintain independence through access to the resources they need
- Social: Ensuring all people have universal human rights and enough resources to be healthy and secure
