The Green Deal approach is a framework instrument, consisting of a series of separate green deals concluded over the years. Green deals are voluntary agreements between parties in society and government to tackle specific obstacles in green growth related projects. Citizens, companies, local councils and stakeholder organisations are continually finding their own ways of being more energy efficient and sustainable, but may encounter obstacles that may require governmental assistance. In specific cases therefore covenants are agreed upon between parties and government to try to deal with these issues. Green deals involve sustainability projects and actions and may relate to energy, water, bio based economy, food, mobility, scarce resources, biodiversity, building practice and/or non-energy climate related issues. Each deal is described more in detail on the website.
