European and UK Context
The European Union and the United Kingdom have embraced the principle of sustainable development based on stewardship of the environment.

  • Living within environmental limits;
  • Ensuring a strong, healthy and just society;
  • Achieving a sustainable economy;
  • Using a sound science responsibly; and
  • Promoting good governance.
