With changes in the global temperature and weather, the understanding of the stability of society is necessary to allow us to develop to an environment that is able to resist any disturbance to our ecosystem. This understanding will allow us to build infrastructure in our services and funds to resist these changes and continue to provide a sustainable flow of goods to society. When changes to our ecosystem occur, humanity needs to be prepared to deal with these changes. Also understanding the human impact on the environment allows us to determine what actions have caused a negative impact on the ecosystem and develop a society were humanity can minimize their effect on these impacts. As humanity moves towards the future, the human impact on the environment will be more prevalent and cause changes in our services and capital of resources.
Some arguments posit that the environment is self-sustainable and the resources should be utilized for development purposes. In the Redwoods case, establishments on how best resources should be utilized are established. Locke’s theories will be analyzed in the case relative to the use, regulation and benefits of environmental resources. John Locke establishes in his ideology of the ‘labor theory’; that experience is what contributes to development of the human race (Trachtenberg 3). Through experience, one gets to understand what benefits can be drawn from existent resources.
Environmental sustainability seeks to explain the ways in which exploitation and utilisation of the natural resources will not be made to negatively affect the environment or the health of human beings (Kahn 1995). Environmental sustainability considers the ways through which resources will not be used up faster than they are being replenished, and the transition toward low carbon emissions despite the increasing population. Figure 3.1: The Three Pillars of Sustainable Development Source: Kahn (1995) The theoretical framework used by Kahn explains the need to integrate and appropriately co-ordinate the economic, social and environmental units of a country to achieve sustained social and economic development. In other words, to realise qualitative growth rather than

This law aims to increase the energy efficiency of the country and do a better job on conserving energy by promoting and support the research and development team on discovering new energy saving technologies and products. Besides that, it aims to cut down on emission that might cause pollution to the country. The target of the Energy Conservation Law is to construct an industrial system that can preserve energy so that it can bring positive effects to the country’s economic development and enhance the economic structure. It can also indirectly help reduce the emission of pollutants that harms the environment if unnecessary energy consumption is cut
By explaining the concept of working-class environmentalism, she is standing on the argument that beside concerning on economic development, the government should also concern about the risks of their policies towards the environment which will affect the livelihood of those lowest-paying-highest-risks job takers. On the other hand, by acting as the proponent of workers’ rights upon environmental issues, Barca also promoted the importance and safety of the environment itself as it is a place for human beings and other species live, like what the ecocentrists have hold
Therefore, by taking economic, social, environmental issues into accounts is a key approach to develop sustainably in different contexts. According to Griggs et al. (2013), the improvement of life quality should be within the scope of earth’s ability to support human well-beings. They mentioned that the twin priorities for sustainable development goals(SDG) must be both the earth’s life-support system and poverty reduction . It is also noticeable that different from the common understanding, which often puts clean air, ecosystem services and biodiversity into the category of environmental sustainability, Griggs et al.
Chipotle should focus on targeted marketing campaigns to their consumer target. These advertising campaigns should focus on the locally sourced, environmentally friendly practices that the brand is embodying and living. Since the target market is also sensitive to product price, these campaigns are an opportunity to connect the higher rate with the quality of the product and the social benefits that are created by paying that additional amount as a consumer. There is still a chance that the price increase might lead to a decrease in their target consumer base. Any claims made by Chipotle as far as their environmental and social good initiative needs to be firmly based by facts and active practices, or the company is at risk of being “outed” by any number of social and environmentally focused groups.
The focus of globalization on the economic benefits needs to be translated into health benefits. It also required that the resources generated by globalization process should be more favourable to developing countries and used to strengthen health systems, to ensure universal access to cost-effective interventions, and to improve other services essential to health, such as education, water and sanitation, environmental protection and effective nutrition and health safety programmes (Woodward et al, 2001). Countries should protect health-related spending from reducing in public expenditure, limiting the adverse effects of low or negative growth on the incomes of the poor, this will equally minimize the adverse effect on the health. It is important to monitor the effects of globalization and health, and to ensure that the results of such monitoring are fed effectively into decision-making processes at the national and international
According to them, environmental degradation is the price for the development to be achieved. Deteriorating environment is often linked with increasing economic activity, requiring deforestation, energy consumption etc. The term sustainable development (as defined by the Brundtland Commission) is development that meets the needs of current generation without compromising the needs of future generations. It is using resource in such a manner that fulfil the needs of present generation without affecting the environment so that future generation can also use same resources .Social equity , economic welfare and ecological integrity are the three pillar of sustainable development. Sustainable development will achieve if these three pillars are in harmony to each other.
