How We Define Sustainability
Sustainable Creatives Coalition adheres to the definition of sustainability as defined by the Brundtland Commission’s Our Common Future Report of 1987:
“Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
We acknowledge that sustainability expands beyond the borders of development but continues to encompass three main pillars: economic (profits), environmental (planet), and social (people).
While there are no agreed upon measurement systems, members of the Sustainable Creatives Coalition work towards bringing about positive change in one or more of these pillars in an effort to meet the needs of the present without compromising the abilities of future generations.
