Personal Definition of Sustainability - Jonah McGreevy

A system is sustainable and regenerative if the mean consumption is less than or equal to the mean output of the system. Consumption variance in a sustainable system is lower than output variance. Limited resources are sustainable to the extent that they are used for modularized, recyclable technology and infrastructure.
