Introduction to the case study with theoretical frameworks of ethics
Global problems cannot be resolved without radical transitions. The major cause of the problem
is overconsumption of nonrenewable resources. It has resulted in an unsustainable demand for
high living standards in a world equipped with limited resources.
The present level of consumption and production patterns cannot be utilized for a longer time.
People residing in first world countries have high living standards as they have gained a fair
share in the availability of these resources(Trainer, 2016).
On the other hand, most of the people residing in the rest of the world have been deprived of
these resources. So, this assignment is based on the issue of sustainable lifestyles as per the
research conducted by Ted Trainer.
As per the research, about one-fifth of the people in the world belonging to first world countries
such as Australia are living higher standards of lifestyle. They are dependent upon four-fifths of
the nonrenewable resources of the world.
The assignment further illustrates the applicability of two ethical theories viz. Act Utilitarianism
and Kant’s Duty Ethics on the case study of Sustainable Lifestyle.
Background Evidence for ethical dilemmas presented by the case study
It has been examined in the case study that the current levels of consumption and production
patterns reveal an unsustainable ecosystem. But on the other hand, due to this production and
consumption pattern, there has been an endless acceleration in economic growth.
