Hawaii 2050 Sustainability Plan
The State’s first definition of sustainability
A Hawai‘i that achieves the following:
- Respects the culture, character, beauty and history of our state’s island communities
- Strikes a balance among economic, social and community, and environmental priorities
- Meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs
This definition is the foundation of Hawai‘i 2050. It is the beginning of a shared vocabulary about sustainability and the future of our state.
