English term or phrase:a more environmentally sustainable future
"An investment in methane capture and use projects is an investment in a more environmentally sustainable future," said Bob Meyers, principal deputy assistant administrator for EPA's Office of Air & Radiation. "By financing international projects through the Methane to Markets Partnership, the U.S. government and its global partners are cutting greenhouse gases while promoting economic development and energy security."
Strictly speaking, "environmentally sustainable" does not necessarily implies "sustainable development". For example, methane capture will cut the release of greenhouse gas, which contributes to the sustainability of the environment.
