A relevant example is including it into preamble of the 1994 WTO Agreement, as a call for the ¨optimal use of the world’s resources in accordance with the objective of sustainable development¨, a major difference from the text of GATT 1947, where the focus was on ¨developing the full use of the resources of the world and expanding the production and exchange of goods¨. More recently, the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement between Canada and the European Union was designed with an entire chapter related to sustainable development. However, even if we speak about it as a guiding principle or we adhere to the opinion that we should consider sustainable development as a source for a new branch of international law, it still does not provides clear obligation for the States to follow in
With the world changing at an extremely rapid pace, Green Theory has been created to implement environmental legislation into a governmental system. This has been done through what can be considered to be four pillars of Green Theory: taking responsibility for environmental impact; distributing goods without over consuming; making sure that violence does not occur; and the grassroots democracy, allowing for the general public to become involved in environmental issues. Green Theory is rather a new concept and only started to come about after the end of WWII when the baby-boomer era started. This meant that not only was the population growing, but also pollution as more material was needed and more resources ended up being exploited to keep up with the growth. This led to a concern for the environment, or the creation of environmentalism as a concept.
In addition, a large body of literature in macroeconomics has underscored that productivity spillovers are important determinants of economic growth and that an increase in collective human capital will have an effect on collective productivity which is as a results of an increase in an individual’s education on productivity as a result of the investment in education. (Moretti, 2005). Robert (1991) developed a human capital model which shows that education and the creation of human capital is responsible for both the differences in labour productivity and the differences in overall levels of technology that we observe in the world today. This, according to him, explains the spectacular growth in East Asia that has given education and human capital their current popularity in the field of economic growth and development. Countries such as Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan have achieved unprecedented rates of economic growth while making large investments in education.
Uganda in the post-independence advocated within their own developmental policies, the encouragement of expanding and growing the private sector within their own country as a means of growing the country’s economy. From 1987 the Ugandan government included the notion of privatizing the governments’ public enterprise in their Economic Recovery Programme. The role of privatization in Uganda has two aims as to why it was initially encouraged, first “to reduce the direct role of government in the economy; and to develop a correspondingly greater role for the private sector” (Okecho n.d.). The Economic Recovery Programme that was launched by the Ugandan Government in 1987 highlights the pathway which the government hoped to achieve in the future regarding their private sector, which would encourage economic development in the country. Moreover the Economic Recovery Programme which is the foundation of the strategy of the privatization process of the industries in Uganda was basically based on the objects that there will be a reduction if the government’s role on the within the country’s economy, which will as a result create a more open and a greater role for the private sector within Uganda’s economy.

Sustainable development is a simple idea of ensuring a better quality of life for everyone, now and for generations to come. It means achieving social, economic and environmental objectives at the same time. The 1992 Rio Earth Summit was attended by 152 world leaders, and sustainability was enshrined in Agenda 21, a plan of action, and a recommendation that all countries should produce national sustainable development strategies. Despite binding convections and numerous detailed reports, there seems to have been little known about the details to ordinary citizens around the world.
This report also known as Bruntland report (Drexhage, 2012). This report expressed concern to propose strategy for long term basis to protect the environment thus achieve the sustainable development goal. The definition of Sustainable Development (henceforth SD) is to encourage human to develop sustainable without sacrify of the future generation to meet their own needs (United Nations , 1987). According to 1987 Bruntland report and the United Nations Conference on environment and development in Rio, Brazil in 1992, the objectives has been focused and discussed to promote the economic growth for the develop countries with the consideration environment protection to achieve the sustainable development goal (United Nations, 1992).

However, it is claimed that it was first used by The Wall Street Journal in an article published by them back in 1999. Philanthropreneurs firmly believe in investing rather than waving off the check which makes them active donors with abundant resources who aim to achieve social changes that are both sustainable and scalable.

Utilizing territory comparability, it plans to express the amount of nature's "investment" we are as of now appropriating. On the off chance that more bio productive area and ocean is needed than what is accessible, then it is conceivable to accept that the rate of utilization is not feasible. Then again, if everybody existed inside their earth share, we would expend just to the extent that the planet can give. Ecological footprint provides the aggregate consumption of a wide range of resources both energy and materials and used to compare the resource consumption with natural available resources to indicate the level of consumption is sustainable. An extensive variety of vitality and material assets, ecological footprint could be utilized to pose as a viable rival the total asset proficiency of delivering comparable items.
S. Graham describes it as the process of sus-taining a level of entrepreneurial development as to create a paradigm shift in economic activity such that national GDP, job growth, capital investment, technology advancement, and quality of life is un-matched, unsurpassed and unequalled. And the hu-man population should strive through local, state and national efforts to seek to establish an economic mentality that is strategically focused on entrepre-neurship and authentic organic economic growth at the community level (Graham 2010). While Shaltegger and Wagner perceive sustainable entre-preneurship as in essence the realization of sustain-ability innovations aimed at the mass market and providing benefit to the larger part of society. By re-alizing such a (radical) sustainability innovations sustainable entrepreneurs often address the unmet demand of a larger groupd of stakeholders (Shaltegger, Wagner
