Sustainability: A Path-breaking Idea, but Still Associated with Huge Challenges

  • Juergen Peter Kropp

    (Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, Potsdam, Germany)

Registered author(s):

    Sustainability science is a young discipline that started emerging in the late 20th century, although Hans Carl von Carlowitz had already introduced ideas about sustainable management of forests in the early 18th century. In recent times, the Club of Rome report in 1972 and the Brundtland report in 1987 developed these concepts further, and subsequently the sustainability idea became prominent in political debates as well. In both reports it was recognized that growth would have certain limits and a different style of resource utilization was therefore necessary. However, despite numerous approaches dealing with sustainability, it is still an important issue.
