Sustainable originally meant “durable”, or, in ecology the concept that human population and activity should not be larger than the carrying capacity of Earth. However, nowadays the term sustainable is found everywhere: from government reports, to company websites and marketing, and it often means something like “good”. However, the definition of what is “good” is often vague.

The environment is defined as our surroundings. This can be either the natural environment or the built environment. Through human activity, the environment is facing problems. Environmental problems increase as the development and ecological footprint of a country increase. However, after a country has reached a certain level of development, public concern leads to more environmental legislation. The sustainable development goals (SDGs) are a global effort to bring solutions to environmental problems.
