Sustainability entered the TEU with the Amsterdam Treaties. The (then) Member States highlighted their determination “to promote economic and social progress for their peoples, taking into account the principle of sustainable development”. Progress has however been very slow so far, as attempts at integrating environmental and other sustainability considerations in internal market law and policy has been lukewarm at best. The European Green Deal heralded changes in the relation between market and sustainability. While much will depend on acts – including legislation – implementing the European Green Deal it is argued that a deeper reconsideration of EU economic law is needed.
