While I like the idea of 'shared inter-temporal prosperity', linking to 'the subject of climate change, environmental protection and bio-diversity' - could the concept not be simplifed to tracking inequality, income inequality in particular, and linking this to environmental sustainability? The growth paradigm is problematic from an environmental sustainabilty perspective, yet measures to reduce income inequality (through taxation, provision of accessible, affordable public services etc) can actually contribute to env sust. We already have indicators like the gini coefficient ... can these be augmented and added to to include consideration of env sust?
