About This Journal

The basic understanding of the term “environmental sustainability” set forth in this journal expands the understanding of human activity so as to connect it with the concept of ecological interdependence. The human species is fundamentally dependent on the continued flow of ecosystem services and environmental sustainability is thus a condition of interconnectedness and balance that allows human society to satisfy its needs while neither exceeding the capacity of any of its supporting ecosystems to continue to regenerate the services necessary to meet those needs, nor diminishing biological diversity. and to achieve environmental sustainability must establish adequate constraints on the use of material, energy, air, water, land and biotic resources and on the discharge of wastes.
