chapter

states that
Environmental protection requirements must be integrated into the
definition and implementation of the Union policies and activities, in
particular with a view to promoting sustainable development.
This rule encapsulates a legal principle that constitutes one of the most
important elements of EU environmental law.2 Indeed, Article 11 TFEU is arguably
one of the fundamentally most important provisions in EU treaty law as
a whole. Integrating environmental protection in all areas to the extent
necessary to secure sustainable development is a prerequisite to securing the
very basis of our existence. Economic development and social welfare or, as
formulated as an objective of EU law: achieving ‘a highly competitive social
market economy, aiming at full employment and social progress’, is in the long
run fully dependent on the stability of our ecosystems.
