Term Sustainable use

This term refers to the use of the environment and its elements in such a way and at such a pace that it does not result in long-term reduction of biodiversity. In this manner, production and protection activities are to combine natural resources, capital and labor, while at the same time generating revenue and net profits, as well as long-term economic, environmental and social benefits, aiming at ensuring that their current use will not have a deleterious effect on use for future generations.
