Continues the examination of sustainability as the maintenance of critical natural capital, and its compatibility with the objective of social justice. Suggests that the tendency of justice to deal in substitutability (e.g. through compensation) works against the tendency of sustainability to eschew it (nothing can compensate for the loss of critical natural capital in this first conception of environmental sustainability).

Keywords:   compensation, environmental sustainability, social justice, substitutability
