EU and the world

The EU has a significant impact and influence on the rest of the world through trade, foreign policy, providing official development assistance and through its consumption of natural resources.  In all of these areas, there are potential environmental impacts to manage as well as opportunities to promote environmental sustainability and sustainable development.
