Abstract from DBPedia
    Sustainability The current definition of sustainability in the Oxford Dictionary is “The property of being environmentally sustainable; the degree to which a process or enterprise is able to be maintained or continued while avoiding the long-term depletion of natural resources“. A broad policy concept in the global public discourse and is often conceived of in terms of the three pillars: environmental, economic and social. The original semantic meaning of sustainability The quality of being sustainable at a certain rate or level. A closely related and overlapping concept is that of "sustainable development". UNESCO formulated a distinction as follows: "Sustainability is often thought of as a long-term goal (i.e. a more sustainable world), while sustainable development refers to the many processes and pathways to achieve it." According to the "Brundtland Report" Our Common Future (1987), sustainable development is defined as development that "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."

    持続可能性(じぞくかのうせい、英: sustainability〈サステナビリティ、サステイナビリティ〉)とは、一般的には、システムやプロセスが持続できることをいうが、環境学的には、生物的なシステムがその多様性と生産性を期限なく継続できる能力のことを指し、さらに組織原理としては、持続可能な発展を意味する。すなわち、人間活動、特に文明の利器を用いた活動が、将来にわたって持続できるかどうかを表す概念であり、エコロジー、経済、政治、文化の4つの分野を含むものとされる。経済や社会など人間活動全般に用いられるが、特に環境問題やエネルギー問題について使用される。この概念は「ブルントラント報告」(国連環境と開発に関する世界委員会、1987年)で提起された。以上から転じて、企業の社会的責任(CSR)との関係で、企業がその活動を持続できるかどうかという意味で論じられることもあるが、これは、本来の用法とは異なる。

    持続可能な開発(じぞくかのうなかいはつ、英: sustainable development; SD)とは、「将来の世代の欲求を満たしつつ、現在の世代の欲求も満足させるような開発」のこと。「持続可能な発展」と訳されることもある。また、持続可能な開発が行われ持続可能性を得た社会を、持続可能な社会と言う。
