Climate change, as one of the defining challenges of today, has serious consequences for the security and socio-economic interests of all NATO member states. The opposite relationship is also valid - a significant part of NATO-structures operations have an impact on the environment.

Along with the synthesized presentation of the main phases of the development of environmental concepts in the structures of the Alliance, the paper focuses on the introduced NATO Framework for Green Defence. Independent attention is also paid to the environmental highlights of the „NATO-2030“.

In this context, some issues related to the organization of appropriate environmental accountability regarding the interaction of NATO structures and their activities with the environment are commented on, with a view to publicity and awareness of all stakeholders.
