Environmental Stewardship is an ethic that embodies responsible care and respect for the natural environment through conservation, preservation, restoration, and responsible individual and collective behavior. Environmental Sustainability implies a cross-generational commitment to this responsibility, and to its economic, and political, and social dimensions. Considerations include—but are not limited to—ecological system function, climate change, energy use, natural resource and ecosystems/land use, and human health and well-being.
