This chapter examines the emerging sustainability movement on Sakhalin Island in Russia. It analyzes the dominant discourses on sustainability among the many actors involved in the island’s socioeconomic, political, cultural, and environmental transformation in order to understand the strategies employed to achieve environmental justice. It argues that the socioeconomic and environmental change on Sakhalin Island may be attributed to multinational-led offshore hydrocarbon development in the Sea of Okhotsk.

Keywords:   sustainability movement, Sakhalin Island, Russia, environmental justice, socioeconomic change, environmental change, offshore hydrocarbon development, Sea of Okhotsk
