This position paper presents an overview of the origin and meaning of the concept of sustainable development in various domains and their interrelationships, expressed as the People-Profit-Planet triangle. The role of Wageningen UR and its position in society is clarified: the three P domains are related to ecology, economics and social and cultural disciplines. Case studies, involving fisheries, pig production chains and a regional study in the Pantanal area, illustrate the difficulties and possibilities of achieving threefold sustainability. This paper is presented on the occasion of the Dies (85th anniversary) of Wageningen University
