    SUSTAINABILITY

     

    In 1987, the Word Commission on Environment and Development in the Brundtland report defines sustainable development as "development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs". This approach considers environmental, economic and social aspects.

    Greenwashing is a marketing measure to create an ecologic and responsive image even though no real actions in favor of a sustainable development have been undertaken. Generally, the assessment criteria of a concept or brand sustainability take into account 3 pillars of sustainable development:

    • Environment : respect of biodiversity and natural resources, reduction of energy expenses, favoring renewable resources, limiting the use of chemicals, reduction of the ecological footprint, recycling.
    • Economy : local suppliers, ethical business.
    • Social : social justice, training of employees, fight against poverty and inequality.
