2014 BSA Sustainability Report

We in Scouting are intent on helping our members move from leaving no trace to leaving a positive legacy. We are working hard to integrate sustainability at every level of our organization and are committed to developing the next generation of responsible leaders.

Defining Sustainability

Sustainability. [suh-stey-nuh-bil-i-tee] β€” noun β€” the ability to

be sustained, supported, upheld, or confirmed. The word comes

from the Latin sustinere, meaning β€œto hold up,” but what does it

really mean?


Is it all about ecology? Does it go beyond recycling and energy

efficiency? How does it apply to youth-serving organizations like

Scouting, as opposed to construction, manufacturing, or extractive

industries? As big as the BSA is, what can we do to address global

issues like climate change and ecological overshoot?
