In contemporary liberal political literature there are a lot of researches whose authors devote their attention to social and economic justice but it seems they have not paid any special attention to the environmental dimension since now. In this paper I am trying: (1) to answer the question what kind of attribution the idea of social justice has for natural resources; (2) to point out that justice of future generation plays an indispensable role for the concept of environmental justice.
