Define Sustainability

Webster’s defines sustainability as “the ability to be sustained, supported, upheld, or confirmed.” But we don’t think it’s a good definition for our vision of a sustainable system.

There is also an environmental science definition, “the quality of not being harmful to the environment or depleting natural resources, and thereby supporting long-term ecological balance.” Closer, but still a little lackluster for the implications that it has.

Sustainability is supposed to be something that starts at one point, and doesn’t ever have to stop; some kind of closed loop system that can run without any materials added or waste vented.

There are tons of other phrases associated and implied with sustainability, like green, eco-friendly, efficiency, organic, bio-diversity, natural, balanced, etc.

At Ecosystems, we believe in the endurance of a system.

We are on an endeavor to reduce the negative impacts of environmental and social systems that affect climate change so that businesses can prosper while preserving the wonderful world they reside within.

We do our best to take out the inefficiencies and replace them with long lasting ideas that are better for your business, your wallet, and the world. Something that starts at one point, and doesn’t ever have to stop.

Tell us! What does sustainability mean to you?
