Ten principles of sustainable development?
Like so many lists of 10 there are a multitude of potential points espoused by one organization or another. All of these lists suggest "good" ideas and there is lot of crossover.
One organization(ICMM) suggests:
The Hanover Principles (Expo 2000) suggest:
One organization(ICMM) suggests:
- Implement and maintain ethical business practices and sound systems of corporate governance.
- Integrate sustainable development considerations within the corporate decision-making process.
- Uphold fundamental human rights and respect cultures, customs and values in dealings with employees and others who are affected by our activities.
- Implement risk management strategies based on valid data and sound science.
- Seek continual improvement of our health and safety performance
- Seek continual improvement of our environmental performance
- Contribute to conservation of biodiversity and integrated approaches to land use planning
- Facilitate and encourage responsible product design, use, re-use, recycling and disposal of our products
- Contribute to the social, economic and institutional development of the communities in which we operate
- Implement effective and transparent engagement, communication and independently verified reporting arrangements with our stakeholders
The Hanover Principles (Expo 2000) suggest:
- Insist on the right so humanity and nature to co-exist
- Recognize interdependence
- Respect relationships between spirit and matter
- Accept reponsibilites for the consequences of design
- Create safe of objects of long term value
- Eliminate the concept of waste
- Rely on natural energy flows
- Understand the limitations of design
- Seek constant improvement by the sharing of design

Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of thepresent without compromising the ability of future generations tomeet their own needs. In other words, we ha…ve to live our lives (using water,electricity, coal, oil, fossil fuel, carbon dioxide, greenhousegases) in such a way that our children and our grandchildren andall the generations coming after them will also have the samechance of living a sustainable life. It follows then, that we have to make serious changes to ourlifestyle in the very near future, or there will be a very unhappyfuture for our children and grandchildren. We cannot keep going theway we are. The Bruntland Report (1983) was the first publication andrecognition of what the popular term "Sustainable development". Itoutlined 4 key figures. The main focus being " meeting theneeds of the present without compromising the needs of thefuture". It also talks about social justice, futurity and economic growth. A: Sustainable development can be defined as a development that meetsthe needs of the presents and still take the future generations inminds. A: A sustainable development is a where economy, society and theenvironment all balance out and can agree with each other so thatit is fair for everyone. A: Sustainable merely means that you can keep it up for generations.It is normally used with reference to the environment. As anexample, cutting trees for wood is sustainable if you don't cuttrees more quickly than they grow back. If the rate of cutting ishigher than the rate of growth, there will at some point be no moretrees - this is not sustainable. The same goes for hunting, fishingetc. - a sustainable rate is one where there will still be fishwhen our grandchildren grow old. A: In the context of industry, sustainable normally means that theindustry doesn't pollute so much that people eventually won't beable to live or grow food in the area. A: . Sustainable development means development without sacrificing the needs of the futuregeneration. . Sustainable development is an organizingprinciple for human life on a finite planet. It posits a desirablefuture state for human societies in which living conditions andresource-use meet human needs without undermining thesustainability of natural systems and the environment, so thatfuture generations may also have their needs met. . Refer to link below for more information. Sustainable development refers to development that can continueover a long period of time. Sustainable development takes intoconsideration environmental issues and embraces conservation.Sustainable development is when the use of resources by humans isaimed to ensure the sustainability of the environment while meetinghuman needs.
The essence of sustainable development is to ensure that theenvironment is conserved. Embracing alternative sources of energyand waste management are among some of the things …that promotesustainable development.
Reliance on Solar Energy. Biodiversity. Population Control. Nutrient Recycling
ANSWER by BipolarAttorney 02/07/08 Sustainable development is a term that refers to development that is environmentally conscious. There are numerous factors taken into acco…unt, including but not limited to: geographical development of the site, choice of building materials, energy conservation and waste reduction and recycling. Another related issue is the idea of "green design," which is somewhat analgous to "sustainable development."
Development that meets needs the of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
Sustainable development is about creating everlasting emprovement through the provesion of ecological, social and economical combination in which will continue providing the i…mprovements and enhances the quality without an end of that. Alternative explanation: Sustainable development is an approach to meeting our present needs without compromising the needs of future inhabitants of the earth. The goal is to maintain a good and healthy lifestyle for as many people for as long as possible - potentially forever. Examples would be: Not using easy or cheap industrial processes that pollute the air or water when better less harmful processes are available, not destroying endangered eco-systems just because they are handy to present development, extracting new materials from ore at the expense of power and resources when recyclable materials are available. Tools in the pursuit of sustainable development are understanding the total impact of decisions, avoiding waste production, avoiding over consumption, appropriate conservation of resources against future needs, reclamation of damaged ecosystems, identification and use of renewable energy and material resources, energy and material reclamation and recycling, adopting lower impact lifestyles.
- Growth is an ongoing process - Everyone is an individual - Growth proceeds from head to toe - Growth proceeds from the center of your body outwards - Growth comes from simpl…e to complex - crawl, stand, cruise, walk, run - Growth depends on nature and nurture
I think the correct answer to be said is , Preserving things as well as using it. eg. using water as well as saving it.
All resources come from nature and all wastes are recycled.
The principles of sustainable development refers to the organizingprinciple for human life on a finite planet. It also refers to theposits of a desirable future state for all …human societies to livein desirable conditions without undermining the sustainability ofthe natural system and the environment.
1) eliminate systematic increases in concentration of substances from the earth's crust in natural systems 2) eliminate systematic increases in concentrations of substanc…es produced by society (i.e. compounds not found in nature) in natural systems 3) eliminate systematic physical degradation of nature through over-harvesting, introduction and other forms of modification (i.e. actions that prevent natural systems from performing the services upon which we depend) 4) eliminate the systematic undermining of people's capacity to meet their needs
How sustainable future of natural resources can be developed applying the various appropriate conservation principles?
it may be best done by applying and using more and more renuwable resources as solar, wind ,geothermal etc. the main principle may be- . - reuse and recycle the existing reso…urces. . - apply best management methods. . - spread awareness . - innovation of new technology to boost resources and stop misuse.
1. suppose a particular country is quite developed we would like this level of development to go up further or at-least we maintained for future generation. 2. since the seco…nd half of the 20th century the no.of scientists have been warning that the type of levels of development are not sustainable. 3. ground water is an example of renewable resource. but if we use more than what is replenished by nature then we would be overusing this resource. 4. once the nonrenewable resources would be exhausted we wont be able to use in near future. so using the resources judiciously will help in maintaining the sustainability of our development of our economic system.
lots of ways especially logging because it brings lots of money to the countries economy but the locals loose out and animal habitats are destroyed
'Sustainable development' means finding ways of reducing the need for more resources.
well it looks like you havnt gotten an answer so far so i suggest surfing the web of prefixes and suffixes that should show you what you need to know
The three principles of sustainability are Solar Energy, Chemical Cycling, and Biodiversity. Solar Energy: Involves the use of the sun to provide life to the plants, thereb…y providing life (and light and warmth) to this planet. Without the sun, or rather, solar energy produced by the sun, plants could not grow. Without plants, the consumers of said plants would not survive. This is why Solar Energy is important in regards to the principles of sustainability. Chemical Cycling: Involves the transfer of chemicals such as nutrients and minerals from the soil and solar energy transferring to plants, then transferring to the animal that eats the plant (herbivore), transfer of the same nutrients to the animal that eats the herbivore (carnivore), and the transfer of the nutrients from the carnivore to fungi, and then the nutrients and minerals are transferred back to the soil to be recycled. Chemical Cycling involves producers (such as plants), consumers (the herbivore and carnivore) and decomposers (the fungi/decomposition of the consumer to return to the soil). Biodiversity: The term is short for "Biological Diversity" and refers to the many variances of life on the planet, the natural habitats, and natural resources. Natural life would be animals, plants, and microorganisms. Natural habitat examples are forests, oceans, and deserts. Natural resource examples are air and water. Biodiversity, variances in species, contributes to evolution of said species, and humans rely on biodiversity to survive, just as all animals do as well, along with the planet.
