Definition

Specifically, the guideline aims to achieve the following goals: 1. Avoid risk: avoid or at least minimise detrimental effects on the environment and climate. 2. Exhaust the potential for improvement: fully exploit the potential for improving the quality of the environment and avoiding greenhouse gases. 3. Adaptation to climate change: take the effects of climate change into consideration to ensure that the positive effects aimed for are not jeopardised and that adaptation capacities are increased.
