International Issues

Green diplomacy

In June 2003, the Thessaloniki European Council agreed to launch an initiative aimed at promoting the integration of environment into external relations through the creation of an informal network, known as the Green Diplomacy Network.

The Network consists of officials dealing with international environment and sustainable development issues in the EU's Ministries of Foreign Affairs and their diplomatic missions including the European External Action Service (EEAS) and the EU Delegations. Since January 2012, the Network is chaired by the EEAS.
