Sustainability Initiatives

What is Sustainability?

Broadly, it is defined as the ability to sustain, uphold, support or confirm. It is comprised of three dimensions: environmental, economic and social.

In relation to our environment, it requires supporting long-term ecological balance and not depleting natural resources. Socially it requires that we meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
