Sustainability

  • Sustainability helps us to evaluate the choices we make and suggests a more effective means of doing business as usual.  A strong financial case for sustainability exists as institutions, businesses, and individuals use sustainability to modify current practices making them more effective, saving capital and time. These environmental, social, and economic considerations are known as the triple bottom line, and can be thought of as another way to define sustainability.

    Today sustainability has evolved into an institutional framework endorsed by the United Nations and World Business Council.  Sustainability is being implemented in the United States in a wide variety of settings from organizational management and building design to educational institutions. This website provides information regarding sustainability and provides links to resources for consumers, businesses, government, and educational institutions.
