One Planet Living Framework
One Planet Living is about enjoying a high quality of life within our fair share of the earth's resources. If everyone in the world consumed as many natural resources as the average person in the UK we’d need three planets to support us. If we all lived the average American lifestyle, we’d need five planets to support us.
One Planet Living is a model based on ten simple principles which provide a framework to make sustainable living easy and affordable for all. Organisations all over the world are using the tried and tested One Planet Living model to reduce their environmental impacts and demonstrate their commitment to sustainability. With ten guiding principles One Planet Living is comprehensive and flexible, allowing organisations to develop their own solutions to the sustainability challenges that they face. The very best organisations have committed to challenging targets and have an endorsed One Plant Action Plan and hundreds of other organisations are using the One Planet Living model in their own way.
