Achieving sustainability: Bright future for Zim’s property sector

Daniel Wahl defines sustainability as the underlying pattern of health, resilience and adaptability that maintain this planet in a condition where life is a whole can flourish. This idea suggests that human societies must live and meet their needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs, continue with societal progress and increase the quality of life.

To ensure progress of sustainability, principles that hold its foundation should be considered. Sustainability is made up of three pillars: the economy, society and the environment. Sustainable development in the property development sector is of paramount importance as it saves the national budget, fulfills the needs of people and conserves natural resources for future generations.

While sustainability is certainly a trendier concept, there is another concept that is quickly gaining ground: regeneration. Regeneration complements and takes sustainability even further, acknowledging modern society lifestyles to be sustained for generations to come.
