What is Sustainability?

The concept of sustainability was defined in the report named “Our Common Future” published by the World Commission on Environment and Development (WCED) in 1987 and took its place in the literature. The definition of sustainability in the report: “Humanity has the ability to make development sustainable to ensure that it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” Sustainability is not just a concept related to the environment. It is a holistic concept that combines ecological, economic and social dimensions.

It is necessary to create a balance between nature and people to ensure sustainability. Our life depends on natural resources. We all know that these natural resources are limited. Therefore, we need to think about our individual and social responsibilities.

Companies and enterprises that focus on sustainability draw attention with their recent works. For example; Ecording is one of the enterprises that creates a positive impact by collaborating with companies. Ecording turns every product or service sold into a seed ball with the technologies it develops. So; it offers positive solutions to the climate crisis by turning them into a tree. Brands, which adopt a sustainable production approach, transparently share their production stages. You can find that information on the brand’s website. Well, do you know the production conditions of the brands you prefer?

Carbon Footprint

Carbon footprint is the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere as a result of the activities of a particular individual, organisation or community. One of the most important effects of increasing our carbon footprint is climate change. The most important threat of our age is the climate crisis. The climate crisis has devastating effects on the lives of all living things.

To individually reduce the carbon footprint; you can choose public transport. You should pay attention to meat consumption and consume fruits and vegetables in season. Using recycled materials or cloth bags is also one of the things you can do.

There are many content and resources available to help us think on and question sustainability. For example; Esmiyor is a podcast that deals with the climate crisis with different guests. However; I recommend you to listen to podcasts with various content on sustainability such as Kentte Ekolojik Hayat, Çevreci Geek ile Bu Hafta and Notion Talks.

The work done by companies is not enough for a sustainable world. Our consumption habits and preferences play an important role in determining the targets of brands. When purchasing a product, we can benefit the world by paying attention to what we buy. “Every time you spend money, you’re casting a vote for the kind of world you want.” says Anna Lappé. Choosing sustainable brands is one of the favours we can do individually for the world.
