Achieving sustainability

DANIEL Wahl defines sustainability as the
underlying pattern of health, resilience and
adaptability that maintain this planet in a
condition where life as a whole can flourish.
This idea suggests that human societies
must live and meet their needs without
compromising the ability of future generations
to meet their own needs, continue
with societal progress and increase the
quality of life.
To ensure progress of sustainability, principles
that hold its foundation should be
considered. Sustainability is made up of
three pillars; the economy, society and the
environment.
Sustainable development in the property
development sector is of paramount importance
as it saves the national budget, fulfills
the needs of people and conserves natural
resources for future generations.
While sustainability is certainly a trendier
concept, there is another concept that
is quickly gaining ground; regeneration.
Regeneration compliments and takes sustainability
even further, acknowledging
modern society lifestyles to be sustained for
generations to come.

meets the current needs of the clients
without compromising the ability of future
generations to enjoy the legacy of development.
This will be achievable through the
transformation of the settlement patterns in

standards and impact and its resultant on
environment.
Sustainability encourages people to make
decisions betting on the long term and taking
future generations into account.
In this way, acting sustainably encompasses
a temporal framework of decades
and considers more than the profit or loss
involved in the short run.
