The Missing Piece Of The Puzzle
By Ernst Young
Sustainability as a concept, theory, and philosophy, is one which has plagued scholars for decades in its definition and application. The requirement for something to be “sustainable” has been instrumental to the success or failure of technological introductions into new, often fragile environments. The gravity of its presence lies with its ability to revive or destroy our natural environment, and in the case of the latter can be considered a missing piece of a technological puzzle.
The word sustainability was first appeared in Edward Goldsmith’s ‘Blueprint for Survival’ in 1972.
