Sustainable Development

Sustainable development entails treating environmental aspects on an equal footing with social and economic aspects. Making this abundantly clear is one of the Council’s missions. Future-oriented management means that we have to leave future generations a globally intact ecological, social and economic system. The one cannot be achieved without the others.

The German Sustainable Development Strategy gives sustainable development concrete shape through its goals and indicators and in so doing offers long-term orientation for sustainability policy in Germany. Various institutions – including the RNE – are tasked with ensuring that the principle of sustainability is applied throughout the federal government’s work.
