Science and Engineering for Sustainable Development

Sustainability has emerged as the key imperative for economic development. Doing well while conserving the planet for future generations is the core of sustainability.
Doing well in economic activity (profit) is the starting point for developing capability of being able to doing good to the planet and people. Being greedy about profit, ignoring planet and people is not sustainable.

It is very important that while leveraging natural resources for economic growth, enhancing access to energy and increasing prosperity for alleviating poverty, we need to be respectful and responsive to preserve the nature and natural setting to be sustainable. It is also important to draw resources from the nature in accordance with the principle of nature and natural setting. Sustainable development requires striking a balance between resource exploitation and conservation.

This balance would differ on the basis of geography, society, resource type, industry, as well as the type and size of business. The emerging field of Sustainability Science and Engineering is responding to this challenge.
