Understanding Sustainability and Its Benefits for the World

Sustainability, or sustainable development, is a concept that encompasses not only environmental concerns but also economic and social aspects of human life. It involves efforts to meet present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainability originates from a concern for the environment but has evolved to include various other aspects, including economic and social dimensions.

1. Understanding Sustainability


Sustainability is based on the principle of meeting today’s needs without sacrificing the rights of future generations to meet their own needs. This definition was first proposed by the United Nations’ Brundtland Commission in 1987. According to this definition, sustainability aims to create a better life for the current generation while preserving natural resources for future generations.

2. Key Aspects of Sustainability


While applicable to various sectors and aspects, sustainability comprises three key dimensions:

  • Environmental: Maintaining the balance of environmental components and responsibly consuming the Earth’s resources, including biodiversity and reducing carbon emissions.
  • Social: Providing equal opportunities for all individuals to lead better lives, including the protection of human rights and equitable access to basic services such as education and healthcare.
  • Economic: Building a sustainable and inclusive economy where economic growth does not harm the environment and enhances social well-being.

3. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)


SDGs are a series of goals set by the United Nations (UN) to achieve global sustainable development by 2030. These goals cover various aspects of sustainable development, including the elimination of poverty, health, education, environmental protection, and peace and justice. There are 17 SDGs with 169 related targets.

The formulation of the SDGs is proof of how serious all people in the world are in thinking about a sustainable life on earth.
