"Satisfying current human needs without compromising the ability of future generations to satisfy their own needs; operating in a manner that satisfies the following conditions: 1) must not remove materials from the earth faster than they can be regenerated by the earth, 2) must not pollute or contaminate the air, land, and water faster than the earth can process and clean them, 3) must not destroy or over-harvest nature faster than it can regenerate itself, and 4) fairly and equitably covering basic global human needs."
