What does "sustainable" really mean? In its broadest context, sustainable development "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." This was the definition established by the World Commission on Environment and Development (the Brundtland Commission) in 1987. Essentially, sustainability means that decisions made by the present generation will not reduce the options of future generations, but will pass on to them a natural, economic, and social environment that will provide a high quality of life.
