The Renewed EU Sustainable Development Strategy was adopted by the European Council in June 2006. It is an overarching strategy for all EU policies which sets out how we can meet the needs of present generations without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.

Climate change and clean energy
Sustainable consumption and production
Conservation and management of natural resources
Social inclusion, demography and migration
