Investing for a Sustainable Future: From best practice to common practice


Courtesy of European Environmental Bureau

For the last few years, trade unions together with social and environmental organisations representing a large and diverse group of NGOs from all over Europe, have been cooperating in the field of sustainable development. We share a common belief that sustainable development serves the goals and values of our organisations and members.

In joint publications we have welcomed and commented on policy initiatives on Sustainable Development from the European Commission and European Council. Since 2003, we have intensified our cooperation into a common campaign for Sustainable Investment, as we felt the need to campaign more strongly for real and visible implementation of Sustainable Development in the EU.

Many fine words have been devoted to the topic, but our organisations and members – and, we believe, a majority of EU citizens – want to see sustainable development in the real world, in concrete projects, in their daily life. Many inspiring examples exist, in various cases even supported by EU money, but too often they remain exceptions.
