“Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”. This is the Brundtland Commission’s definition of ‘sustainable development’ in their 1987 Report of the United Nations World Commission on Environment and Development, as they sought to consider the “interrelationships between people, resources, environment and development.”
The concepts of sustainability continue to evolve today, over thirty years later, and are increasingly important as we already are experiencing negative impacts due to climate change. We’ve seen an increase in extreme weather events, increased flooding due to sea level rise, destruction of ecosystems and hotter temperatures. Based on data and trends, scientists predict the impacts related to climate change could get much worse, unless we take significant action. The potential effects of climate change are far reaching and can be difficult to grasp as we live our day to day lives.
In this webinar, we’ll take a step back and discuss what sustainability is all about, how we got to this point, and why it’s important. We will also focus on what we can do as individuals, companies, and organizations to be more sustainable and combat climate change.
