Conceptualising Sustainability


Leist, Anton; Hollande, A (2000). Conceptualising Sustainability. Cambridge: Cambridge Research for the Environment.

Abstract

Sustainability is currently the term dominating environmental policy. Its extensive political diffusion is in stark contrast, however, to the extent to which there is agreement over its meaning. Its ability to motivate is not in question,
but a certain scepticism surrounds its ideological content. Since ideological terms have no objective basis, it is therefore important for the purposes of environmental policy to establish whether such scepticism is justified.
