Sustainable living is lifestyle and philosophy

Sustainable living focuses on choices and behaviours that centre on living within our means to encourage human and environmental health.

Sustainable development was first defined by the Brundtland Report in 1987. He aimed to present environment-related issues and challenges in the context of political, social, and economic development.  

Today, the principles of sustainability are emphasised by the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which want to preserve the planet for future generations.

Sustainable living is not a perfect system

The shift towards sustainability in our homes, communities, and lifestyles looks different for everyone.

Individual actions can lessen our impact on the planet as they are part of the collective movement. Living a sustainable lifestyle can benefit our household, the community, economy and environment.

It is important to note that the onus is not exclusively on the individual. Corporate and state-producing entities also need to address the planet's environmental issues.

Reduce your consumption

We're consuming resources at an unsustainable rate.

  • Reducing our energy use means more than turning off the lights. Investing in energy-efficient appliances can make a significant impact.
  • Water use has increased more than twice the rate of population growth in the past century. However, we can change how we use water and reduce our overall consumption.
