Since the Brundtland Commission’s report ‘Our Common Future’ was published in 1987 by the United Nations, ‘Sustainable Development’ has been defined as:
“development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”
Since then, and particularly over recent years, ‘sustainability’ has become something of a buzz word. It is used in construction and development to demonstrate a strong moral and ethical character, however a closer look at many of those championing ‘sustainability’ would reveal that their credentials are actually paper thin.
At M. Developments we believe human impact on society and the environment has increased to an extent that a fresh look needs to be taken at what ‘sustainable development’ should mean. We aim to undertake:
“development that meets the needs of the present while improving opportunities for future generations to meet their own needs, and the environment in which they do so”
