Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Kulturwissenschaften - Sonstiges, word: 1,3, Universität Passau, Veranstaltung: Vergleichende Entwicklungs- und Kulturforschung, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: „Nachhaltigkeit“ ist ein zunehmend zentralerer Begriff in unserem alltäglichen Leben. Viele Produkte werden als „aus nachhaltiger Produktion“ deklariert und im großen Maße konsumiert. „Nachhaltige Entwicklung“ ist ein weltweit anerkanntes Leitbild in der Politik,Wissenschaft, Wirtschaft und Zivilgesellschaft, welches seit über 60 Jahren in der internationalen Debatte Eingang findet. Gegenwärtig ist die Nachhaltigkeitsdebatte, ausgelöst durch den globalen Klimawandel, so omnipräsent wie noch nie. Palmöl, als nachwachsender Rohstoff, wird dabei als „Schlüssel [im] Kampf“ gegen den globalen Klimawandel und für die Versorgungssicherheit innerhalb der Gemeinschaft gesehen. Doch wie nachhaltig kann beispielsweise eine Palmölproduktion sein, wenn dafür Regenwälder degradiert und Menschen vertrieben werden?

Viele verschiedene Nachhaltigkeitsmodelle wurden in den letzten Dekaden formuliert. Von großer Bedeutung ist hier das Nachhaltigkeitsdreieck nach Carlowitz, welches die Dimensionen einer nachhaltigen Entwicklung vorgibt: Ökologisches Gleichgewicht, ökonomische Sicherheit und soziale Gerechtigkeit. (..)
Diese drei integrativ betrachteten Nachhaltigkeitsdimensionen gelten foreign als die Grundziele um eine lebenswerte Existenzgrundlage für die Weltgemeinschaft zu schaffen.

Da die Problematik der Nachhaltigkeit kein einfach abgrenzbares policy-Feld ist, sondern ein Querschnittsthema, das andere gesellschaftliche und ökologische Bereiche tangiert, sollen im Folgenden jene komplexen Wechselwirkungen und Prozesse an dem paradigmatischen Beispiel der nachhaltigen Palmölproduktion in Indonesien, dem Land mit der höchsten
Palmöl Produktions- und Exportquote, skizziert und verdeutlicht werden. Kein anderes Thema polarisiert die globale Diskussion so sehr, wie die energetische Verwendung von „Sustainable Palm Oil“ als erneuerbare Ressource. (...)
Dafür wird zunächst der Begriff „Nachhaltigkeit“ nach internationalen criteria erläutert und im wissenschaftlichen Diskurs betrachtet, bevor auf das Drei-Säulen-Modell eingegangen wird, welches die Grundlage für die in dieser Arbeit durchgeführte examine darstellt. Anschließend wird der indonesische Palmölsektor hinterfragt, um folglich dessen Ausmaße auswerten zu können. Das Konzept des zertifizierten „Sustainable Palm Oil“ bildet dann den Anstoß für eine kritische examine der ökonomischen, sozialen und ökologischen Dimensionen der Palmölproduktion.
