Surveys the relationship between social justice and environmental sustainability through the lenses of the ‘environmental‐justice’ and ‘sustainable‐development’ movements. The objectives of these movements are used to show that we should not necessarily assume compatibility between the two social objectives. This produces ‘tensions of legitimation’. Can they be resolved?

Keywords:   environmental justice, environmental sustainability, legitimation, social justice, sustainable development
