The government’s definition of sustainable development

May 24, 2011

I noticed my MP Gavin Shuker raised a question recently, asking the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what definition of sustainable development they were using.

Here’s MP Richard Benyon’s reply. Note what order the definition comes in:

On 28 February, the Government set out their vision of sustainable development as an approach which allows us to realise our vision of stimulating economic growth, tackling the deficit, maximising well-being and protecting our environment. This should be achieved without negatively impacting on the ability of future generations to do the same.
