Successful sustainability pursues balanced, ethical solutions that are economically viable, environmentally sound and socially just so that current and future generations may thrive.
The social component of sustainability focuses on people and communities, including whether everyone has access to clean air, water, soil and food. NC State has ongoing research and student initiatives that work toward a healthy future of social, environmental, and financial balance.
