International Environmental Policy

International environmental policy is particularly important in times of increasing globalization and covers a number of issues: climate protection, sustainable energy policy, preservation of biological diversity and the conservation of forests, seas and soils. Further related topics are desertification, sustainable waste management and protection against hazardous substances. Nearly all these issues need overarching strategies to ensure that environmental protection is considered in other policy areas.

"I firmly believe that environmental action leads to greater social justice and that the two are inextricably linked."
