According to the United Nations World Commission on Environment and Development, sustainable development is "meeting the needs of the current generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
The Center for Sustainable Communities says that sustainability "consider[s] the whole instead of the specific. Sustainability emphasizes relationships rather than pieces in isolation."
"The Story of Stuff" author Annie Leonard says "sustainability must include equity and justice."
