The Sustainability Glossary.

A collection of the most relevant sustainability terms, their category and definitions.

Dcycle has launched the Sustainability Glossary, a collection of the most relevant sustainability terms and their definitions. The aim of the glossary is to provide a common understanding of sustainability and all it comprises. 

The glossary brings together the three key areas of sustainability: society, environment and economy, which together, in balance, can ensure sustainable development. You can access the glossary directly from this link

What is the sustainability glossary? 

  • A resource to spread a common understanding of sustainability.
  • A support guide for our clients.  
  • It helps to distinguish between environmental, economic and social sustainability. 
  • It includes 187 terms divided according to the three pillars of sustainability, which will be expanded in the future. 
  • It helps to understand the different environmental impact reduction strategies. 
  • It provides an insight into the most relevant international standards and agreements. 
  • It explains the problems posed by climate change. 
  • It presents different solutions that currently exist to reduce our environmental impact.

What to use the Sustainability Glossary for? 

This glossary can be shared by the company both internally and externally, and will help to resolve doubts about sustainability terms.In addition, it will allow to know to which category each term belongs (environmental, social, economic). Thus, it will help the company to find a balance between the three pillars in order to be able to make strategic decisions.
