Since the United Nations General Assembly in December 1987, and its Resolution 42/187, sustainable development has become an issue and an aspiration of our civilization. The most often-quoted definition of sustainable development has been formulated by the Brundtland Commission [1] as the development that “meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
