Basic Principles of Sustainability: What Should we Pay Attention to?

How do we distinguish the basic principles of sustainability? Sustainability can be divided into subtopics in various ways.

Tom and I usually keep it at 3: planet, people, profit. And those 3 can also be subdivided.

Recently I found a list that seemed very interesting to me: social, economic, cultural, and environmental, each of which is subdivided into 6 principles.

This article gives an overview of all our articles that belong to such a subtopic.

On the internet, we find all kinds of classifications of the basic principle of sustainability. Some use 3 principles, but 4, 5, and 6 principles also occur.
