Environmental Sustainability is a term used to describe business processes and practices in words of people, planet, and profit. It comes from the concept of sustainable development (Our common future, 1987). The main reason for a definition of environmental sustainability was to help environmental professionals and others operational a portion of the concept of sustainable development. The business practices of seeking out ways to create a positive impact in each of these areas (people, planet, profit) have also proven to be the right business strategies.
