Abstract

Sustainable development is defined as being more than a specific "end-point', but a dynamic and continuous process which encompassed a myriad of separate decisions spread over both time and space. Industrial ecology is defined as the means by which a state of sustainable development is approached and maintained; it requires a systems view of human activity and its interrelationship with the fundamental biological, chemical and physical cycles which constitutes the industrial ecology metasystem. It is suggested that current and future environmental policies will need to be designed in relation to the metasystem, if they are to be successful in encouraging sustainable development. This can be effected by way of better training, workshops and meetings, designed to inform decision-makers about the functioning of the industrial ecology metasystem. -A.Jordan
