1) Substances from the Earth’s crust must not systematically increase in the biosphere.
2) Substances produced by society must not systematically increase in the biosphere.
3) The physical basis for the productivity and diversity of nature must not be systematically
4) In order to meet the previous three system conditions, there must be a fair and efficient use
of resources with respect to meeting human needs.

Equilibrium climate sensitivity (ECS)

Ever larger parts of nature are manipulated to meet the demands of society, and ever-smaller parts can be said to be untouched by human activities (Vitousek et al. 1997).

The ecosphere 
The ecosphere is that part of Earth which directly or indirectly maintains its structure and flow using the exergy (ordered energy, available work) flow from the ”sun/space battery”. With this definition the ecosphere contains the biosphere , the atmosphere (including the protective stratospheric ozone layer), the hydrosphere and the pedosphere (the free layer of soils above the bed-rock)

Decision supporting tools 
Decision supporting tools for reduced environmental impact, e.g., Life-Cycle Assessment (LCA),
streamlined LCA, Design for Environment (DfE), ecological footprint, factor x, environmental
space, or the environmental management systems ISO 14001, EMAS and BS7750 (Vellinga et al. (1997).
