Abstract

The word “sustainability” finds its root in the Latin word “sustinere” (to hold). The important definitions include the words support, endure, and maintain. However, in the recent past, specific definitions hinting toward human sustainability on planet Earth have been popular. Sustainability is a method and an approach to create and maintain conditions under which humans can coexist in harmony with nature while fulfilling economic, social, and other requirements of present and future generations. It represents a multifaceted approach to managing our environmental, economic, and social resources for the long term.
