Using the definition of “academic” in Ms. Brundtland’s report “Our Common Future,” sustainable development is “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
Both simple, because after all it is common sense, but sometimes complex to implement, sustainable development is a different development path. It takes into account the impact of economic decisions, but also those related to environment and social concerns. Integrating sustainable development in a development project or within an organisation is a source of innovation, social cohesion and overall performance.
At amc², reflection and a sustainable development assessment lead teams to define two areas for improvement: externally to better support clients in their needs (energy improvement of spaces, alternative eco materials, “green” work sites) and internally to raise awareness and train people.
