Better World home Sustainability Better World home Summary and highlights ... About the report Sustainability The concept of sustainable development has increasingly come to represent a new kind of world - a world in which economic growth delivers a more just and inclusive society, at the same time as protecting our natural heritage. This website, which we've called Better World, is BT's triple bottom line sustainability report. In it we identify and quantify our social, economic and environmental impacts and set forward-looking targets. This section looks particularly at:
  • how we approach the management of sustainable development within BT; how we have taken a lead in assisting moves towards sustainability; how information and communication technologies can act as an enabling technology for sustainable development.

By adopting sustainable practices, companies can gain competitive edge, increase their market share, and boost shareholder value. What's more, the growing demand for 'green' products has created major new markets in which sharp-eyed eco-entrepreneurs are reaping rewards. This site explains the strategies and tools that companies can draw on to translate an aspiration of sustainability into practical, effective solutions. Case studies from around the world are provided as an example of each measure. The site's six sections cover:
    • Current issues: briefings on specific sustainable development topics from a business perspective Strategies and tools: how to incorporate the principle of sustainability into everyday business activities, illustrated by real-life examples Markets: business opportunities arising from sustainable development Banking and investment: spotlight on how sustainable development is being approached by the financial services industry Working with NGOs: how businesses are forging working partnerships with lobby groups Training opportunities: how universities and professional training providers can help industry leaders incorporate sustainability into their business strategies
    For many of the topics covered on this site, links are provided to case studies and useful web resources.

Industry is on a three-stage journey from environmental compliance, through environmental risk management, to long-term sustainable development strategies. In the initial phase of the journey, the need to comply with environmental regulations drives improvements in environmental performance. Businesses adopt a more proactive approach in the next phase. Environmental risk management is introduced, to reduce environmental liabilities and to minimize the costs of regulatory compliance. A substantial number of companies recognize that the implementation of sustainable business strategies can lead to new opportunities and improved results - the business and sustainable development phase.
    Step 1: regulatory compliance
    The first step on the journey is compliance with regulatory measures.

    Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development "Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development" is one of the four thematic programmes of the Fifth (EC) RTD Framework Programme (1998-2002). In addition to this programme, there is a separate Specific Programme on Nuclear Energy , based on the Euratom Treaty. Its objective is to help exploit the full potential of nuclear energy to contribute to energy and environmental objectives. For implementation purposes, the EESD Specific Programme is divided into two sub-programmes, Environment and Sustainable Development, and Energy. Within Environment and Sustainable Development, the work is divided into Key Actions and generic research activities Implementation of RTD activities is through calls for proposals launched according to a well-established time schedule. The budget of the programme is 2,125 million euro, 1,083m euro of which is for the Environment and Sustainable Development sub-programme and 1,042m euro for the Energy sub-programme (not including nuclear energy), for the period 1998-2002. The ESD programme is actively contributing to the implementation of the European Research Area in the domain of sustainable development:

    Sustainable Development in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland
    The project
    The project Sustainable Development in the Highlands and Islands has been funded by DGXVI of the European Commission (EC) and has been undertaken by a partnership of local funding partners - all ten of the Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) Local Enterprise Companies (LECs), Scottish Office Development Department (SODD) and Scottish Office Agriculture, Environment and Fisheries Department (SOAEFD). HIE acted as project manager and expert support was provided by Environmental Resources Management (ERM). The project is one of twelve pilot projects across Europe funded by DGXVI to assist with the integration of sustainable development into current and future structural funding programmes.The Highlands and Islands project is the only Objective 1 study, the other eleven being conducted in Objective 2 areas.
    Purpose of the project
    The Amsterdam Treaty of June 1997 placed sustainable development at the heart of European funding and led the EC to state, in its proposed new fund regulations, that regional development plans should be justifiable against the principles of sustainable development. As a result, the project Sustainable Development in the Highlands and Islands was undertaken to prepare for the likely significant changes to the new Highlands and Islands regional plan.

    the WSU Sustainable Development Sourcebook! Earth WISE consists of a bibliography and selected abstracts of academic writings exploring a range of social and ecological science perspectives on sustainable development. This compilation attempts to integrate the social, cultural, economic and ecological dimensions of sustainability, giving special attention to the human causes of environmental impacts, the social organization of sustainability and the equity of sustainable development. Our goal is to assist educators, students, business leaders, elected officials, public administrators and other community members in understanding the topic of sustainability. It is our hope that this increased understanding will promote well-informed, sustainable and equitable policies in both the private and public sectors. Earth WISE is a working bibliograpy, and is continuously in the process of being updated. We welcome your comments in this effort.

    Science and Sustainable Development
    Ten years on from the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, thousands of international policy makers gathered in Johannesburg between August 26 and September 4 at the United Nations World Summit on Sustainable Development. Politicians, scientists and pressure groups attempted to set out plans to counter the current global trend: that environmental degradation is the price to be paid for prosperity. Issues high on the agenda included depletion of fresh-water reserves, population growth, the use of unsustainable energy sources, food security, habitat loss and global health - all addressed in the context of social justice in balance with environmental sustainability. Science is no longer on the fringes in attempting to solve these problems. Unlike Rio in 1992, consultation with researchers from a host of relevant disciplines was widely sought during the summit's preparatory meetings, and organisations such as the Paris-based International Council for Science have been asked to submit formal contributions to the summit. Over the past few years
