The Four Pillars of Sustainable Development

Bali is the number 1 the world’s most popular destination in 2021 by TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards. The rank takes down London to the runner-up place and Dubai at the third. There is a good reason why we call it paradise. Not only Bali is known for the holy temples and gorgeous natural landscapes, but it also offers the life that people long for, -a slow pace, chill lifestyle-. Also, Bali has an excellent reputation for its first-class hospitality and has often been trusted with hosting international events even within the pandemic situation with the current one being G20.

We can’t help that living in Bali is a sort of hype

it is almost magical that you can have both urban, modern combined with the tropical perfection in the island at the same time. For this particular reason, home demand in Bali is thriving fast. This is then followed by a growing number of establishments such as Bali villas, cafés, restaurants, beach clubs, and many others. However, we all understood that this comes with a risk. We lost plots of Bali’s lands for the sake of development. Although this is inevitable, it is critical to figure out how to mitigate the side impacts that might occur since our available natural resources and spaces are limited yet the figure of birth remains high. This is when sustainable development plays a major role.

So, what is sustainable development?

Cited from unesco.org, the sustainable development concept was introduced in 1987 by the Bruntland Commission Report. It is described as, “Development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

Further explained, sustainability and sustainable development are not quite the same but interconnected. Sustainability is the long-term goal that we want to achieve, sustainable development, on the other hand, acts as a medium to achieve it. long term sustainability, in this case, refers to a condition where we can realize our desired healthy living to fulfill our needs without compromising nature and still retain a safe, balanced environment for future generations especially in the aspects of society, environment, culture, and economy.

The 4 Pillars in Sustainable Development that Becomes Our STANDARD

Generally speaking, sustainable development is talking about our ways and approach to preserve our nature especially in the focus of the 4 main areas above, which we call the pillars, in the following.

Society

The purpose of sustainable development in this aspect is to improve the well-being of our community in the long run. As our population is growing in number, there is an increase in primary and secondary needs. With more business activities and housing demand going around the world, employing raw sources, they add up more losses of natural resources that we already know are scanty. The situation is getting worse with extreme climate change rapidly happening worldwide.  

Hence, we need to ensure that we can evade the extinction of our nature so we can meet the demands further to better human welfare and to save future generations. To balance our rising number of societies, it is critical to push on creating more favorable health and education systems as well. This is so we can get more excellent health quality as well as gain the skill and learn how to be responsible and pay respect to our nature by devising green technology that can support this goal instead of just continuously exploiting it for the sake of gaining profits.

Environment

To promote environmentally sustainable development, as described by Dunphy, Benveniste, Griffiths, and Sutton (2000), is when achieving human welfare through our business can be without harming our environment in the short or long term. This matter is so complex because it may take time to build awareness of these 4 pillars and to design new procedures, approaches, and presumably green technologies to change the way we handle our environment (land, water, etc.).

However, when if it is for our goodness in the years and centuries ahead, we think that the hardship is worth it. For instance, we have been adopting smart home wastewater management and incorporating energy-saving technology. Although nature has its powerful way to regulate wastewater, however, seeing the loads that come from abundant households, rather than letting them pile up and causing a flood, we can help ease its burden through our consideration for utilizing a smart wastewater management system in your home.

Culture

You might wonder what cultural aspect has something to do with sustainable development. Just like how our ancestors passed down Balinese culture long ago and are still in practice today. Sustainable development is a long-term commitment that will shape our way of thinking in the world we are aiming for – a world of green, sustainable living at its best-. Imagine when we succeeded in our sustainability mission, it would bring a positive impact to the future. Someday our relentless work from the first moment we realized the need for togetherness in making this shared idea real and the time we completed our mission will become history and that will be appreciated, integrated by the governing laws, and encourage a new positive outlook on how we see the world.

Economy

Economic sustainable development accounts for practices to boost our economic growth while keeping our environmental, social, and cultural aspects safe. However, the challenge lies in the notion that our growth of population will follow the economic growth of our nation. People do think that with more people on earth, they have more potential customers that will purchase their product. The false in this way of thinking is, according to Harvard Business Review, the higher cost our planet has to go through to get the products people purchase don’t amount to the higher price point for the customers. It makes it an unfair practice that doesn’t benefit our environment, society, and culture in the future. Although few businesses are starting to manufacture technology that can support economic sustainability, we believe that we are in progress to make this ideal goal come true.
