Globalisation
Sustainable international development requires a substantial reduction of natural resource use on a global level and a fair distribution of environmental space between countries in North and South.

Europe
The treaty of the European Union defines sustainable development as a constitutional target of the EU. In particular the articles 2 and 6 of the EU treaty require the integration of environmental, economic and social policies in order to promote sustainable development. On this basis SERI advises governments and relevant agents within society.
