We like this word that John Thackara uses in a post about a UK local government call for tender that omitted the need for sustainability. John says:

A good example of ecocidal policy in action was an announcement last week concerning the Design Centre of the North (DCN). The regional development agency, One North East, has published a public call for tenders for organisations to run the new institution.

The word sustainability does not appear, once, in the accompanying text – despite the fact that 80 percent of the environmental impact of products and buildings is determined at the design stage.
