"Sustainable development" was initially coined in the Brundtland Report and has since then been widely defined by various persons and institutions. Unfortunately it has to a large extent been used inappropriately. Due to this it is perceived to have lost its integrity. It is however still a fundamental goal, process and way of thinking that forms the foundation of this business and it reflects the triple bottom line including financial, social and environmental benefits in everything we do. This is reinforced by concepts such as cleaner production, climate protection, event greening, sustainable procurement, zero waste, renewable energy, green buildings, fair trade, responsible tourism, effective use of resources and innovate ways to reduce the ecological footprint one step at a time. Participation, effective communication, constant monitoring and final evaluation of lessons learnt are essential principles used in sustainable project management implementation.
