“Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
It involves much more than just protecting the environment but includes making sure that we create the circumstances for everyone to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives without destroying opportunities for future generations or our neighbours across the world.
Sustainability is as concerned with equality, health, employment, leisure, and freedom from crime as it is about protecting biological diversity and reducing waste.
