Today the definition of “sustainable design “ has become a widespread reality and an object of debate within the context of international design culture, referring to an concept which is typical of the planning process for a product or social or economic system, with respect for the environment we live in. A lower impact on the natural environment is achieved through the use of renewable resources, material and productive processes.
For these reasons, sustainability is based on four fundamental components:
- Economic sustainability: understood as the capacity to generate income and employment to support population
- Social sustainability: understood as the capacity to ensure conditions of human well being (security, health, and education) distributed fairly across classes and categories
- Environmental sustainability: understood as the capacity to maintain quality and the ability to reproduce natural resources
- Institutional sustainability: understood as the capacity to ensure conditions of stability, demography, participation and justice.
