The relationship between environmentally sustainable development and company law and related areas of business law and policy has emerged in recent years as a matter of major concern for many scholars, policy-makers, businesses and nongovernmental organisations.

This book combines a conceptual analysis of the principles of sustainable development and environmental integration in the EU legal system with a particular focus on Article 11 TFEU and its impact on business in the EU. Article 11 TFEU states that European Union policies and activities must integrate environmental protection requirements with an emphasis on promoting sustainable development and the book investigates the role played by Article 11 TFEU in specific areas of EU law affecting European businesses.

The book gives an overview of the role played by the environmental integration principle in EU law, both at the level of European legislation and at the level of Member State practice. It explores a number of issues related to the role played by Article 11 TFEU in the EU legal system, including its history, its function in the Treaties and its significance for EU institutions and Member States.

Contributors to the volume identify and analyse the main legal issues related to the importance of Article 11 TFEU in various policy areas of EU law affecting European businesses, such as company law, insurance and state aid. In drawing together these strands the book sets out what the requirement of environmental integration means for the regulation of business in the EU.
