Where politics is personal not partisan

What is Environmental Sustainability?

Environmental sustainability is an ambiguous term, and there is no one-size-fits-all, clear cut definition.  In essence, it refers to sustainability through the lens of economic, social, and environmental factors, including consequences. However, some commentators argue that issues relating to the environment and climate change are also political. There is also a great deal of political lobbying by many NGOS and other special interest groups, for example, who are pushing for further environmental protections. The Environmental Law Institute has published a paper that takes an in depth look at protecting the environment, while providing commentary on the ambiguity surrounding the term “environmental sustainability”.
