The core of achieving global developmental goals is to ensure long-term sustainability. Sustainability is the use of resources in a way that does not deplete them and provides for their equal and responsible consumption by all. An essential way to achieve sustainable development is to empower people, through education and access, to respect and take responsibility for conserving their local resources. Through empowerment, people can take conscious ownership of their consumption habits and work to improve and adapt them. We work towards sustainability through our Ethical Commitments of Clear Objectives And Sustainable Outcomes, Working Against Dependency, and Responsible Exit Strategies.
