Sustainability means physical development and institutional operating practices that meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs, particularly with regard to use and waste of natural resources. We believe sustainable practices support ecological, human, and economic health and vitality. True sustainability recognizes that resources are finite, and should be used conservatively, intelligently, and with a long-term view of priorities and consequences of use.
Leaders across the world must respond to environmental and social changes: from population growth, urbanization, poverty, resource scarcity, declining ecosystems, and climate change. paleBLUEdot has created a series of services and programs to assist organizations in understanding their overall level of sustainability and to help them discover ways of making improvements.
