More about the series

RESILIENCE: ability to withstand, adapt and thrive in response to known and unpredictable risks, threats or changes.

ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY: the responsibility to conserve natural resources and protect global ecosystems to ensure both the needs of the present and the needs of future generations can be met.
