Chapter 1: Sustainable Decision Making

Sustainable Decision-Making

Environmental decision-making is the process of making choices and taking actions that consider the impact on the natural environment. This can include high-level decisions related to land use, resource management, pollution prevention, and everyday decisions such as how to get to work, what to eat, and how to dispose of domestic waste.

Models of sustainability offer a crucial framework for decision-making. Nowadays, organizations are more frequently integrating a threefold approach, which surpasses solely pursuing economic profits by also considering the environmental and social effects. In other words, the three pillars of sustainability, also known as the triple bottom line, form the basis of a sustainable society, where economic, social, and environmental needs are met in a way that promotes long-term well-being for both current and future generations.


Please revisit “Introduction” for an overview of the three pillars of sustainability.
