- The economic dimension of sustainability
It must be economically efficient to implement. The economic incentive also motivates the producer so, it is of importance for society to generate financial incentives. Economic efficiency, however, is related to the health of the ecosystem, which implies a cost of opportunity. Therefore, the marginal benefit in terms of environmental improvement obtained for each resource that is improved should be met by a similar range of interventions potentially.
- The social dimension of sustainability
Growth = economic prosperity (is that correct)
There is no growth without social prosperity.
Material success without social prosperity does not mean growth.
Society sets the terms of social justice for development based on its culture, values and goals.
In many economic systems, there are causes that contribute to the lack of sustainability such as limited resources, inadequate inputs etc.
The absence of sustainability in today’s economic systems gives the image of a fake economic prosperity, short-term perspective.
The application of economic systems accumulates financial debt on the altar of materialistic prosperity, while at the same time exhausts resources, creates an environmental and economic debt.
The integration of social principles into sustainability contributes to the emergence and preservation of intergenerational equality, which covers a range of social development principles.
