What is Sustainable Development?

"Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs" - was a commonly accepted definition qualified by three equal aspects of Sustainability - Social, Biophysical, Economic. Today, this framework is challenged as it is held that business and society cannot exist without a sustainable biophysical basis. Furthermore, Political power, policy and decisions are recognised as a fourth critical aspect.
