“Humanity has the ability to make development sustainable – to ensure that it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
World Commission on Environment and Development, 1987.
Climate change, scarcity of natural resources, increasingly short economic cycles and demographic change are factors that endanger sustainable development.
The globally recognised three-pillar model of sustainability represents the connection of economic performance with environmental responsibility and social justice. These three dimensions of sustainability are equally important. Acknowledging their mutual dependency paves the way for a change of mindset from a linear economy to a circular economy.
At Wurth Australia we are aware of our corporate responsibility within the industry and strive to strengthen all three pillars to ensure sustainable development in all aspects of our business.
