In 1987, the World Commission on Environment and Development developed a definition
of sustainability that was included in its findings, which became known as the
Brundtland Report.

It stated that:

Sustainable development meets the needs of the present
without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs

Although this definition has become widely publicized, the term sustainability
is not limited to one precise definition.
