What Is Sustainability

Sustainability is the sweet spot between environmental, social, and economic well-being. Generally, sustainability plans emphasize the environmental component. Rural Action helps organizations and communities create more holistic sustainability plans that seek to meet their present operational needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs for clean air, water, and soil.
