What is sustainability consulting? Sustainability can be defined as the avoidance of the depletion of natural resources to maintain an ecological balance. Sustainability focuses on meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs, and is composed of economic, environmental, and social sustainability. Sustainability consultants or experts are those retained to assist companies in becoming more socially and environmentally responsible in how they conduct business operations. Sustainability consultants will sometimes be referred to as green consultants, eco consultants, or environmental management consultants.
