Summary Sustainable development is an overarching, global societal goal, encompassingthe search for a balance between economic development, social justice andenvironmental protection. The ultimate objective is the achievement of thebest possible world for all of humanity and the boundaries within which thebalancing must take place is the preservation of our ecosystems as the verybasis of our existence.2Sustainable development has a strong legal position among the ultimateobjectives of the European Union, underpinned by the growing recognition inthe EU of the inextricable entity of humanity, our natural environment andour economic system. The principle of sustainable development is the key,requiring the integration of environmental protection requirements in all areas,with the aim of achieving sustainable development.3 The threat of climatechange and to global biodiversity accentuates the necessity of recognising andrespecting the ecological limits within which all social and economic developmentmust take place.The principle of sustainable development is codified,following the changes made by the Lisbon Treaty, in an enhanced version ofthe rule now enacted in Article 11 of the Treaty on the Functioning of theEuropean Union (TFEU).4
