Future prospects of sustainability

Sajjan Kumar
Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Since the United Nation’s World Commission on Environment and Development published its report in 1987, the notions of sustainability and sustainable development have attracted increasing interest in the field of business and management and recently also of human resource management (HRM). Thus, the aim of this paper is twofold. Firstly, it endeavours to deconstruct the concept of social sustainability and to explore its evolutionary meaning, highlighting the shift from the analysis of traditional ‘hard’ social policy areas towards emerging ‘softer’ research and policy-making themes. It is important to clarify that this paper does not seek to provide operational definitions of, or normative prescriptions for, social sustainability.
