Sustainability and CSR


What does it mean?

For most people it probably means using fewer plastic bags or turning the thermostat down a couple of notches. Maybe you marvel at what wind turbines or solar panels can do.

Yes, of course, there are these things but sustainability is a far wider issue than these. The Oxford English Dictionary defines it like this:

"The property of being environmentally sustainable;

the degree to which a process or enterprise is able to be maintained or continued while avoiding the long term depletion of natural resources”.
