The 3 pillars of sustainability

The “Our Common Future” report laid out three dimensions of sustainability that need to be balanced:

Economic, Social and Environmental

These three components are commonly referred to as a company or organization’s three pillars or triple bottom line.

Environmental Sustainability:

The use of earth resources in a way that they have enough time for earth to replace them as we use them.

Economic sustainability:

Economic sustainability is the practice of conserving natural and financial resources to create long-term financial stability. Its about the continue access of the economy for all people.

Social Sustainability:

When all people have the ability to get the resources and economic access to get what they need while not facing any exploitation or discrimination of any kind.
