In this reply to Losch (2019), I show that, Losch’s own judgement notwithstanding, his plea for a concept of (trans-)planetary sustainability does propose conceptual change. I further argue that he has not provided convincing reasons to think that the label ‘planetary’ is superior to ‘trans-planetary’. I summarize my concerns about the plea for introducing the notion of (trans-)planetary sustainability and a related ethics.
