This article examines recent developments in policy and changed perceptions of the environment. Emphasis is placed on the longer-term environmental challenges which are best encapsulated in the term 'sustainable development'. The importance of the environment as a key aspect of the Single European Market, and the implications of the environmental objectives of the European Community, are discussed through a consideration of the implementation of environmental assessment and other policy measures. A final section of the article considers the role of the environment in providing a bridge between public and private sector thinking and action.
