The common goal of all the nations is to achieve sustainability by fulfilling the Sustainable Development Goals. Environmental sustainability is one of the major goals set by the United Nations Development Programme, and it is reflected in Goals 3, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14 and 15. However, with the advent of urbanisation, the human needs and the environment has always been in conflict. But it is much required that development does not supersede the environmental stability. Hence, it is an absolute necessity that urbanisation and development thereof prevail without causing harm to the environment. Therefore, all the facets of environment, i.e., air, water, forest, etc. need special attention and the planning authorities must include in their planning and decision-making processes the measures that would not only ensure sustainability and retain a healthy environment in the urban areas but also promote health, safety, morale and general welfare of the people living in these areas. The paper discusses the ways in which the planning authorities may adopt eco-friendly infrastructure in order to ensure environmental sustainability in the urban areas
