How is Climate impact, environmental impact and sustainability connected?

Sustainability is the widest term including both environmental, social and economic aspects. Your climate impact is a large share of your environmental footprint, but not all. Environmental impact also includes other ecological footprint aspects, such as pollution, use of crop land, fresh water etc.

Environmental impact refers to the direct effect of socio-economic activities and natural events on the components of the environment. Your personal environmental impact is the effects that your lifestyle choices have on the environment. It includes all environmental aspects like biodiversity, climate change, acidification, plastic pollution, overfishing, fresh water scarcity etc.
