From APEGBC Sustainability Guidelines (2013):

A sustainable society meets the needs of people in a resilient economy without compromising the planet’s ecological integrity or the needs of future generations.  Sustainability has three pillars that must be integrated in a balanced way:

(a)  environmental: to stay within the biophysical  carrying capacity of our region/country/planet
(e.g. minimize resource use, minimize waste, protect  nature from degradation);

(b)  social: to maintain and protect quality of life and the values that we aspire to live by; and

(c)  economic: to ensure that an adequate  material standard of living is provided for all members of society
