David Report: A Checklist for Sustainability

matic 054Title David Report: A Checklist for Sustainability

Description

The David Report bulletin covers the intersection of design, culture and business life with a creative and humanistic approach. By challenging conventional thinking we are always trying to make a difference.

It’s important to always have an holistic approach to sustainability. Otherwise it won’t answer its purpose. The recent failure with ethanol fuel is one good example. Something a lot of a people thought was a great substitute for gasoline is now heavily questioned.

Or look at ‘energy efficient’ houses. Advanced technology controls the indoor climate; temperature, ventilation, light etc. The problem is that we humans react negatively when we are not in charge of our own comfort. Could these houses at all be referred to as sustainable when users are likely to interfere with the system in an effort to make it suit themselves? Sometimes these systems even have to be removed because we don’t want to live and work at a place that doesn’t respects us as individuals with different needs.

What is sustainability to you?
