Environmental management and policy-making is always based on values and ethical principles. A key task for environmental philosophers is therefore to identify and evaluate such elements in environmental management and policy-making. The notion of sustainable development is based on values and ethical principles derived from an anthropocentric ethics. In this essay I focus on its key opponent and identify two different kinds of non-anthropocentrism, namely biocentrism and ecocentrism. What we need to know in more detail, however, is what ethical principles their advocates actually maintain should guide our behaviour towards nature and our environmental policy-making. The main aim of this article is therefore to identify and analyse the content of such normative ethical principles to be found in biocentrism and ecocentrism.
