Environmental Safety Strategy of Ukraine

Ukraine’s path is to systematically move towards achieving the goals of sustainable development

Today, in the context of climate change and depletion of natural resources for mankind, the priority is to reduce resource consumption, transition to renewable energy sources, low-waste and clean technologies and building a waste management system in accordance with European standards. All this is declared in the 17 sustainable development goals, which aim to protect the planet, overcome poverty and ensure peace and prosperity for all mankind.

An important dialogue is between the state, which formulates effective policy, creates a regulatory framework and opens information, and business, which is ready to accept these regulatory changes and adhere to the principles of sustainability in its work. I am convinced that business today must take into account the goals of the European Green Course in the process of strategic planning of its development. After all, Ukraine will invariably move in the same direction as Europe.

Among the main documents that are approved:

- National Action Plan for Environmental Protection until 2025;

- Strategy for environmental safety and adaptation to climate change until 2030;

- updated Nationally Determined Contribution to the Paris Agreement;

- Marine Environmental Strategy of Ukraine, etc.

"And in order to reduce regulatory pressure on business, create conditions for sustainable development without queues and a bunch of certificates, the ministry of environment is implementing the digitalization of the environmental sphere. Already today on the single national portal of reliable ecological information "EcoSystem" 8 online services are available, 70 registers of ecological data are opened and 3 information resources are integrated: the state inventory of territories and objects of nature reserve fund, the website Wownature and the national register of emissions and transfer of pollutants," said the Ministry of the environment of Ukraine Ruslan Strelets.
