The 2020 Vision Series of publications aims to provide information about a range of contentious issues, many of which have featured in the media. The Natural Step (TNS) office in the UK, together with SATIS (the Scientific and Technical Information Service of the Environment Agency), runs a series of 2020 Vision Seminars. These seminars involve invited participants in the sharing of information and debate about the place of specific contentious issues in a future more sustainable world. This 2020 Vision Series publication reports on the sustainability analysis using the System Conditions of TNS, as well as the outcomes of the 2020 Vision Seminar on PVC. In this study, the four TNS System Conditions are used to assess the overall sustainability of traditional and SuDS (sustainable drainage systems) approaches to urban drainage and water management, and also provide the basis for developing a vision of a fully sustainable solution and steps towards it.
