Extractions: of the future Industry plays a central role in our society - now and in the future. In order to meet the challenge of a wider corporate responsibility, Hartmann has taken a commitment towards sustainable development. This means that we are working to ensure that environmental, economic and social aspects of sustainability become part of the overall strategy and business policies of Hartmann. To get a more systematic approach to sustainable development Hartmann has established a division for this purpose. The division consists of three corporate departments: Environmental Department, Corporate Communications and Human Relations. Environmental Department and Human Relations are both engaged in actual projects as well as ethical aspects of sustainability in the entire organisation. The third department, Corporate Communications, aims to create a serious dialogue both inside and outside Hartmann about these aspects. For more information choose Organisation Environmental management plays a central role at Hartmann. In recent years the consumers and the customers have placed great emphasis on environment-friendly packaging, on the use of renewable resources, recycling and on minimising unnecessary packaging. We consider environmental awareness to be an essential and fully integrated part of our business. We are convinced that proactive environmental work not only reduces the risks, but also creates marketing advantages and reduces costs. A good environment is of great concern to both management and employees at Hartmann, and we wish to appear as a good example also in countries with low demands on environmental work.

Extractions: Johannesburg Summit 2002 the World Summit on Sustainable Development The World Chlorine Council (WCC) will participate as an accredited non-governmental organization (NGO) in the upcoming World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD), August 26 September 4, 2002, in Johannesburg, South Africa. The Summit is intended as the first follow-up to the 1992 "Earth Summit" held in Rio de Janiero, which spawned many significant international conventions. More than 65,000 delegates are expected, including heads of State. The WCC will be speaking to how chlorine chemistry and its products are critical to helping to resolve the global crisis in access to safe drinking water and sanitation (the United Nations estimates that over 1 billion people are without safe drinking water, and over 3 billion without adequate sanitation). Further, the WCC will present the global chlor-alkali industry's commitment to meeting these needs in a sustainable manner. This commitment is articulated in nine principles, and discussed in-depth along with a review of current challenges and activities of the industry in the new report, "The World Chlorine Council and Sustainable Development." Our booth will be located at 498 Ubuntu Village, in the NGO Exhibition Area.
Extractions: Housing development is a basic component of the built environment and social development, therefore it has a clear role to play in striving for sustainable development. Hong Kong has made a clear commitment to observe sustainable development although the policy and the implementation mechanism are still in the making. This paper has dual aims: methodologically it attempts to explore the role of housing in the social dimension of sustainable development; empirically it applies the methodology to estimate the social sustainability of housing development in Hong Kong.

Extractions: "Sustainability is the [emerging] doctrine that economic growth and development must take place, and be maintained over time, within the limits set by ecology in the broadest senseby the interrelations of human beings and their works, and the biosphere... It follows that environmental protection and economic development are complementary rather than antagonistic processes."

This Internet tool allows users to navigate easily between Web sites that deal with the principles, policies, and best practices for sustainable development. By following the links through the Web ring, you will find information from around the world on how to deal with such crucial issues as climate change, cleaner production, waste, poverty, consumerism, natural resource management, and governance. This information is particularly suited to decision-makers within civil society, government, business, research and funding institutions, and communities. Our goal is to stimulate further debate and interest in sustainable development. Inclusion of a site in the Sustainability Web Ring does not constitute endorsement by the SDCN or any other member of the Web Ring.

Extractions: Sustainability through the market Why are we involved? In its drive toward sustainable development to-date, business has focused primarily on the supply side of the market. Actions have successfully led to improvements in process and product design through tools such as eco-efficiency. The demand side of the market has not, however, undergone the same scrutiny, despite the fact that significant change is needed in this area to advance sustainability. After completing significant research on the issue, the WBCSD believes that by taking a holistic approach to the marketplace, so that supply and demand are viewed as part of a system instead of being treated separately, the market can enhance sustainability. The business case There are tremendous opportunities for companies to drive profitable growth by providing products and services that improve people's lives in both the developed and especially in the developing countries. The WBCSD believes companies that find ways to do this will generate higher shareholder and societal value.
Extractions: Preserving Integrity of Site. Green construction practices disturb as little of the natural environment as possible. A green building project should evaluate the site and determine how the building could best blend in without merely "imposing" the building on the site. One strategy for preserving the integrity of the site is low-impact development that maintains the land's hydrologic functions and reduces stormwater runoff.

Extractions: The Swedish Institute for Ecological Sustainability, IEH, works as an information hub for issues on ecological sustainability. Our main mission is to increase society's understanding of ecological sustainability and encourage, through relevant networks, the integration of this approach into the Swedish society. One of the main tasks is to act as a bridge between researchers and those who apply these theories, such as industry, local governments and NGOs. Since IEH opened in 1999 we have continuously gathered information about research and practical projects relevant for the transition towards an ecologically sustainable society. The information we collect is disseminated through our website, newsletters, meetings and various national channels. Moreover, the institute supports formation of new national networks that encourage use of current know-how on relevant techniques within different disciplines. As ecological sustainability is a global issue we successively open our databases to the international community. We are therefore continually translating examples of best practise and presenting them on the web. Due to the internationally actual focus on climate and the greenhouse effect, we emphasize projects on how to decrease the release of potent greenhouse gases. See the Best Climate Practice section for the latest examples. You can also find links to other Swedish websites with interesting information in English.
