Green Deal Approach

The Green Deal approach in the Netherlands is an accessible way for companies, other stakeholder organizations, local and regional government and interest groups to work with Central Government on green growth and social issues. The aim is to remove barriers in order to help sustainable initiatives get off the ground and to accelerate this process where possible. Central Government plays a key role in this area. Initiatives often start from the bottom up, in response to societal dynamics. Green Deals cover nine themes: energy, bio-based economy, mobility, water, food, biodiversity, resources, construction and climate. Green Deal C-178 refers to a deal for circular buildings.
