With globalisation, population growth, and climate change dramatically affecting the natural environment, economies, and societies around the world, issues of sustainability have become critical to our future.
Humanity is placing evermore pressure on the environment through increased consumption and resource use, and increased degradation of natural capital such as land, water, air, and biodiversity.
