A striking report comes from Sustainable Aotearoa New Zealand (SANZ). The report is called Strong Sustainability, though as SANZ board member and head of the Centre for Environmental Law at the University of Auckland Klaus Bosselmann notes, ‘In fact, there is only ‘sustainability,’ not a weak and strong version, just as there is no weak or strong version of justice, freedom and equality. You either follow these foundational principles or you don’t.’”
