The European Union (EU) is responsible for contributing to a more sustainable future – not just for people in the EU itself, but for the entire planet. This means we have to expand our thinking to consider the consequences of our policies for sustainability on a global scale.

While this sounds like a straightforward idea, it can be challenging to put into practice. This is where Policy Coherence for Sustainable Development (PCSD) comes in. This leaflet will explain how to implement PCSD to ensure that sustainability is considered across policy making in the EU.
