Sustainable developments must be good for the environment as well as economically sound. A delicate balance is required to achieve both environmental and economic sustainability.
GOALS AND PURPOSES
The primary purpose
of the Center for Sustainable Development (CSD) is to assist in the
creation of environmentally and economically sustainable land and
natural resource development.
developments must be good for the environment as well as economically
sound. A delicate balance is required to achieve both environmental and
CSD is a voice and a resource for
projects that are good for both our economy and our environment.
CSD believes that
the best environmental solutions are also the best economic solutions.
To achieve the “win-win” of both environmental and economic
comprehensive understanding of cost trades and decision consequences is
The Center for
Sustainable Development has been created to assist you in achieving your
project goal to maximize your environmental sustainability and maintain
an economically sound and viable project.
By way of examples
of what our role can be:
--making sure that
any environmental review process is based on the best scientific
information available. For example, in the event it is claimed that a
project would somehow negatively impact an endangered species, CSD would
participate in the agency environmental review process to provide the
reviewing agency with the best scientific evidence so that unsupported
claims about negative environmental impacts are not the basis for agency
the public education process to assure that public awareness of a
project’s environmental impact is accurately understood by the general
public and policy-makers at the local, state and federal levels. CSD
functions as a “truth squad” to make sure the public has accurate
information to work with.
--serving as a “go to” resource for project managers to assist them in identifying the best package of sustainable solutions to achieve sound environmental management goals. For example, CSD would identify acceptable solutions to environmental issues that have been successfully implemented and accepted by regulatory agencies.
Executive Director: Hugh Holub is an attorney and a writer with extensive environmental law and media experience.
CSD contracts with
individuals and companies to provide specific legal and technical
capacity for specific projects.
