Sustaining our Environment for our Development

“Sustainable Development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

~ The Bruntland Report (1987)


“Wherever we are, we act with respect to exert a positive impact on people and on the limited resources of our planet to ensure long-term profitability

~ Common ground statement at the Future Search workshop (2008)


Sustainable development goes beyond the environment. It is basically an approach that says you should not take away more than you add- to the world’s resources and environment, as well as to the well-being of the people who work for you.”

~ Quoted from the Review of The Straits Times (2009)
