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

The goal of which is to achieve balance/harmony between environmental sustainability, economic sustainability, and socio-political sustainability.

Environmentally sustainable economic growth refers to economic development that meets the needs of all without leaving future generations with fewer natural resources than those we enjoy today.

The essence of this form of development is a stable relationship between human activities and the natural world, which does not diminish the prospects for future generations to enjoy a quality of life at least as good as our own.

The idea of environmentally sustainable economic growth is not new. Many cultures over the course of human history have recognized the need for harmony between the environment, society, and economy. The ‘environmentally sustainable economic growth’ is the synonym to the prevalent concept of ‘Sustainable Development’.
