What is Social Sustainability?

Samantha Arpas, Sustainable Finance Analysts at SEB, explains briefly what social sustainability is for us.

Social Sustainability

Social sustainability is an essential component to achieving sustainable development. It is a concept that refers to creating and maintaining societies where everyone has access to basic human rights. Social sustainability looks deeper into topics such as affordable basic infrastructure, access to essential services, affordable housing, employment generation, food security, and socioeconomic advancement and empowerment. Like the environment, social sustainability also requires finance to meet the demands of sustainable development.
