Sustainability Visualizations

Here’s an interesting post which has amassed a collection of 179 different attempts to visually communicate “sustainability.”

Lots of models include notions of economic, social and environmental sustainability.  Some include cultural sustainability (institutional?).  What’s interesting is that few of the models seem to depict “governance” as important, and yet governance is a central part of so-called ESG — environment, social, governance — models of sustainability (e.g., Goldman Sachs, KLD, GRI, etc).  Thoughts?
