Economic sustainability

The Home Quality Mark One, Technical Manual SD239, England, Scotland & Wales, published by BRE in 2018, suggests that ‘economic sustainability’ is:

‘…the third aspect of sustainability. It makes sure our economic growth maintains a healthy balance with our environmental systems and that resources are fairly distributed and used efficiently.’

NB the other two aspects of sustainability are social and environmental.
