The concept of sustainable development was introduced in a 1987 report entitled Our common future by the World Commission on Environment and Development of the United Nations. This report has been referred to as 'The Brundtland Report' in honour of the chairperson, Dr Gro Harlem Brundtland, Prime Minister of Norway. The Commission defined sustainable development as ' ... development that meets the needs for the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs'.
