German term or phrase: Nachhaltigkeitskommunikation
I am looking for the proper English term for "Nachhaltigkeitskommunikation" used in the context of sustainability science. Is it "sustainability communication" or "sustainability communications", or are both of these English terms interchangeable?

agree  Steffen Walter: I agree but, on the other hand, there are "corporate communications departments", so the plural is not completely out of the question (as I see it ;-))
