In 1972, a book entitled “The Limits to Growth“ raised awareness of our planet’s limited resources and the challenges caused by continuous population growth. On the 40th anniversary of this renowned book, Sustainability is dedicating a special issue to this important piece of literature. This special issue aims at revisiting and analyzing the limits to growth of contemporary societies and the current status of resource consumption.
