The World Environmental Forum, taking into account the global nature of most of the environmental problems of humanity, suggests using the term "global environmental safety" in international research. First of all, this is due to the strengthening of the economic and political split. Therefore, humanity, more than ever before, needs world leaders and major companies to take steps to address threats to climate, ecology, health and technological systems together, as part of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. If cooperation is avoided, the world expects a further split and a slowdown in economic growth. Geopolitical turbulence makes international relations more unstable and leads to increased competition between the largest powers, while world leaders must focus on working together to combat common risks. For more information about the specifics, principles and directions of implementing such cooperation in the framework of achieving global environmental safety, see the following sections of the work. Scientists defines the features of environmental security that prove its cross-border nature, among them: diversity, interrelation of all elements of national security, compliance with environmental rights of all population groups, etc. Here it is worth adding that, given the cross-border nature of most environmental threats, environmental security as a category of "component of national security" should be considered in the plane of international relations. World leaders and the development of the international economy now put environmental issues at the head of a multi-faceted world policy. So, in 1957, when the EU was founded, there was no environmental policy, environmental bureaucracy and laws on nature protection. Today, the EU has one of the most progressive environmental policies in the world. The network of its environmental legislation covers all industries: Air Pollution Control, Water Environment, Waste Management, nature protection and chemical control, biotechnology and other industrial risks. The body of EU environmental law consists of more than 500 directives, regulations and decisions. It can be argued that environmental policy has thus become one of the main areas of European policy.
