A healthy and sustainable environment for future generations
The underlying aim of EU environmental policy is to enhance natural capital, promote a resource-efficient economy and safeguard people’s health. A coordinated environmental strategy across the Union ensures synergies and coherence between EU policies and, given the relevance of environmental legislation for many business sectors, will ensure a level playing field for their activities. This publication is a part of a series that explains what the EU does in different policy areas, why the EU is involved and what the results are.
