This means using a regenerable system in such a way that it retains its essential characteristics and its stock can be regenerated naturally. In forestry, for example, this means the principle according to which no more trees may be felled than can grow back. And in viticulture, for example, it is the use of bottles made of lightweight glass, which are required in large quantities. The production of glass, which is about a third lighter, can save an enormous amount of energy and greatly reduce CO2 emissions. But it is just as stable and strong as conventional glass. Ecological sustainability aims to preserve nature and the environment for future generations. This includes the preservation of biodiversity (species diversity), climate protection, the maintenance of cultural and landscape areas in their original form as well as a careful and environmentally friendly treatment of the natural environment. Ideally, sustainability should relate to ecological, economic and social aspects.
