What is Sustainability?

Utilizing our resources efficiently in order for future generations to thrive - people, planet, profit.
It’s about social and environmental responsibility, clean renewable energy, efficient public transportation, ethics, national security.
It’s thinking globally but acting locally, healthy food, synergy, eco-nomics, etc.
In short, it’s about progress and the future.
