What is Sustainability?
The Bryan School’s Virtual Collaboratory for Sustainable Business Practices defines sustainability as articulated by the UNCG Sustainability Council:
Sustainability is the enduring interconnectedness of social equity, the environment, economy, and aesthetics. This interconnectedness provides a foundation from which to discover, implement, and enrich sustainable principles and practices. The intent of sustainability is to instill values that promote justice, invent innovative approaches and solutions to environmental and economic challenges, and instill civility and grace into our communities.
