19 Sep Why is sustainability so important?
Sustainability is the key to a better future. Humans rely on natural resources for business, activities, and survival. Ignoring it can lead to the exhaustion of natural resources.
Sustainability is important to study even if you aren’t an environmental science major. Business majors need to learn about it because it aids in attractiveness to customers and fulfilling Corporate Social Responsibility.
- Agriculture, nutrition, and public health students need to focus on sustainable options in order to learn how to feed a growing population nutritious and quality food.
- Education majors spread the knowledge of sustainable options to the next generation so they can lead change. Every major has a connection to sustainability.
- It’s also important to know if the businesses you support incorporate sustainability in their business model.
