Abstract- Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. What is the route to follow to achieve the goal of sustainable development when we develop a product? Who is deciding the timing, the rules, and the inputs for the sustainable practice? Who is measuring the outcome? And how do we measure it? The talk will focus on the relationship between profit and social sustainability and explains the complex framework around it.
