General Information about sustainability for Meeting Planners and Prospective Clients.
Although sustainability is a relatively new concept, it has its roots in social justice, conservationism, and internationalism. In a nutshell, it could be described as the action of meeting our needs without compromising those of future generations by depleting the limited resources provided by our planet. Today, sustainability, climate change, and corporate social responsibility are important topics we all need to be familiar with in order to create a future of sustainable actions and businesses. It is important to understand that sustainability is not only related to environmentalism since, in addition to natural resources, we also make continuous use of social and economic resources. Thus, we can talk about three distinct, yet inter-related “big pillars of sustainability:” the environment, the economy, and the society.
Environmental sustainability is important for protecting the natural balance which allows us, as humans, to consume natural resources at a rate that will not deplete them. The economic dimension of sustainability is closely related to the environmental one, in trying to achieve economic growth without environmental deterioration. Finally, social sustainability involves attaining universal human rights in communities, at the workplace, and elsewhere – again, without damaging or depleting our limited economic and environmental resources. Proper application of social sustainability permits healthy communities to grow free of prejudices and ensures personal, labor, and cultural rights for everyone.
