This chapter considers non-anthropocentric approaches to environmental protection and relates these to international environmental law today. The core of this idea is that the moral considerations of animals should be given due weight. The chapter looks at recent developments to form new ethical bases of international environmental law and policy. The idea that all species have a moral—intrinsic—value independent of humanity is becoming increasingly recognized in multiple regimes.

Keywords:   non-anthropocentric approaches, international environmental law, ethical base, moral value, humanity, animals
