In other words, prevention measures should be taken so as to minimize environmental damage. The difference between the principle of prevention and the precautionary principle is the evaluation of the risk threatening the environment. Precaution comes into play when the risk is highdso in fact full scientific certainty should not be required prior to the taking of remedial action. The principle of sustainable development. Another general principle of the European environmental law is the principle of sustainability.

Since the 1992 Maastricht summit, the subsidiarity principle has become a very important topic at the European level. The principle of integration. The environment is not only affected by environmental policy, but also by other policies and development decisions. For example, transport policy has a direct impact on the state of environment. It was thus understood that environmental protection could not be achieved, if the environmental dimension would not be integrated in other policies also. Hence, the principle of integration basically requires that environmental concerns are also taken into account in nonenvironmental policy areas.
