    For our francophone readers: They are a corporation/organization that focuses its work on sustainable development. (This usually describes a non-profit/NGO that works in third-world countries.) "Sustainable development" is the effort to help build sustainable communities - communities with the capacity and the resources to remain healthy and prosperous in the long term (ie., sustainable).

    pourquoi pas "entreprise"? le mot "société" est toujours ambigû je trouve, il peut faire référence à la société humaine
