What is Sustainability?

“More”. We may summarize our modern world order like this: More production, more consumption, more use of resources, more waste… We build our economic and social life as if there is no tomorrow or as if we have other worlds to go. The limited world, however, is trying to tell us every day with more clear signs that we have to take good care of it: Actually, we have a method to understand and control our impact on the world.

When it comes to "protect"

Sustainability literally means ensuring the continuation of diversity and productivity, in other words, it can also be defined as maintaining the ability to be permanent. We are in an order and we need continuity to maintain this order. One of the most fundamental things for a sustainable environment is to make our choices right. It is necessary to choose our technology well, to know our climate well, to do everything we can to protect our environment and energy.

WHAT DOES THE CONCEPT OF SUSTAINABILITY CONSIST OF?

There are 3 main components of sustainability; environmental protection, economic growth and social development. When it comes to environmental sustainability, what we need to know as a priority is the fact that the resources contained in the environment and nature are exhaustible. We provide many benefits by taking good care of the resources around us and making this care continuous. In particular, it is necessary to be aware of non-renewable energy sources and to focus on the use of renewable energy sources instead of them. It focuses on protecting the integrity and flexibility of the ecosystem with steps such as reducing the carbon footprint, ensuring the sustainable use of resources in production, waste management, protecting biodiversity, saving energy and water, and recycling.



WHY IS SUSTAINABILITY IMPORTANT?

"All parts of the ecosystem, living or non-living (humans, plants, animals, microorganisms, natural resources, etc.) are indisputably interconnected and interact. Disruption in one link of the chain affects the entire system. Therefore, sustainability guarantees the continuity of this chain, protects our ecosystem and natural resources, and improves our quality of life. It improves all areas from health to education, from culture to social equality, guarantees prosperity and ensures the development of societies. Rational use of resources creates a more livable and safe world. In terms of business models, it allows companies to exist in the long term and leads to more comprehensive development. The fight against global warming is actually a good example of the importance of the concept of sustainability. Today we are fighting global warming so that tomorrow we will be healthier and more prosperous. The fight against global warming aims to take precautions against the problems that the earth will experience in the future. "



WHAT IS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT? WHAT ARE THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT OBJECTIVES (SDO)?

We need a development model in which all individuals, living things and natural resources are considered and that we are sure that it will not cause problems as long as the growth continues. Here, sustainable development also means that countries determine sustainability as the common denominator in their economic and social development goals. On the one hand, it means keeping the ecosystem alive and, on the other hand, achieving the goals of human development.
