EPM 4232 - Sustainability: Policy & Practice

In 1987 the Brundtland Commission, formerly the World Commission on Environment and Development, defined sustainability as "development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." The wording suggests the concept of sustainability is difficult to define. Certainly it relates to some of the most challenging questions of our times: How do we encourage consumption patterns to ensure a continuing resource supply for future generations? How can an individual enterprise, whether it is a major corporation or a mom-and-pop business, practice sustainability? How do well-meaning executives, scientists, engineers and policymakers achieve a balance between environmental protection and economic development?
