Sustainability has many definitions but the basic principles and concepts remain constant: balancing a growing economy, protection for the environment, and social responsibility, so they together lead to an improved quality of life for ourselves and future generations.

The United Nations defines a sustainable society as one that "meets the needs of the present generation without sacrificing the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
