The relevance of the research topic is caused by the fact that human intervention in nature has reached its peak. Meanwhile, without a clean environment, there can be no man, no society, no state. The purpose of the research is to prove that the human right to a favorable environment is a natural human right, requiring immediate recognition at the international level. In conducting the study, formal legal, logical, systemic methods, as well as methods of interpreting law were used. Empirical material is presented by decisions of international courts. It is concluded that the human right to a favorable environment is the legal basis for the development and implementation by each state of an environmental policy that includes the legal, informational, educational, financial, international aspects. The right to a favorable environment is a natural human right with a complex structure. It naturally follows from the original natural human right - the right to life. The case-law of international courts laid the foundation for the recognition of this human right. It is necessary at the international level to recognize the right to a favorable environment as a natural human right.
