HI the terms previously discussed, those activities that entail the possibility of irreversible effects and immoderate costs are now identified as environmentally unsustainable. What counts as an 'unsustainable effect' rather than a sustainable economic cost is a matter of judgement which can only partially be resolved by science. Ethics and the attitude to risk also play a significant role here. It is important that the basis of judgement is articulated clearly, especially as to who is responsible for the effects and who is bearing their costs, and differentiating the contributions played by science, ethics and risk acceptance or aversion.

A Conceptual Model of Wealth Creation and Environmental Sustainability The process of wealth creation is most commonly characterised as one in which different kinds of asset, or capital, are brought together in production to produce goods and services. It is evident from any consideration of real-life production that one of the most fundamental stocks of capital is that provided by nature, here called ecological or natural capital. It is the role of this kind of capital that is emphasised in the model that follows, so that the natural environment's role in and contribution to business activity and the economy may be better understood.

It is important that the basis of judgement is articulated clearly, especially as to who is responsible for the effects and who is bearing their costs, and differentiating the contributions played by science, ethics and risk acceptance or aversion. Detailed sustainability standards will need to be formulated for all the important environmental functions that are perceived to be at risk from human activities, but some general principles for these standards can be posited with regard to the generic functions of resource use, waste absorption and life support.
