8. International Environmental Law

International acceptance of the concept of sustainable development has represented a major step forward. However, making this concept a reality will require many further shifts in thinking, attitudes and behaviours. Both quantity, in terms of materials and energy used and products purchased, and quality, in terms of the preferred use of renewable energy resources and safe and recyclable materials, have a role to play.

Bringing mankind and nature back into alignment will require more than just improved environmental management systems leading to increased eco-efficiency. There remains an underlying assumption that nature and mankinds are two separate systems, man versus nature, where one side always has to lose.
