Environmental policy for a sustainable society02.12.2021 | Broschüre
Sustainable Development Report by the Federal Environment Ministry on the implementation of the United Nations 2030 Agenda
What is decided today in the area of environmental and climate policy significantly shapes our social interaction and defines the quality of life of future generations. Environmental policy serves the goal of sustainable development. It formulates answers to the question of how we want to preserve the natural foundations of our lives and realise ourselves as a society as a whole. It is about how we manage, work and consume in a socially just manner without exceeding the planet's limits.
The BMU's third sustainability report, following the reports from 2009 and 2013, highlights the BMU's diverse activities to achieve all 17 sustainability goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda and the German Sustainability Strategy. The most important concrete measures include, among others, the nature-friendly expansion of renewable energies and the socially acceptable coal phase-out for an affordable and clean energy system (SDG 7), the promotion of innovative infrastructures in future-oriented industrial sectors, such as in the field of hydrogen technology (SDG 9), as well as the Climate Protection Act (SDG 13), which the BMU will lead in drafting in 2019.
