The Dutch government supports sustainable economic growth, by stimulating sustainable innovation. This has a positive economic impact (growth and jobs) and avoids harm being done to the climate, water, soil, raw materials and biodiversity. Companies, community organizations and other government bodies that want to take steps towards sustainability sometimes encounter barriers. Central Government can help them overcome such barriers by closing a Green Deal with other parties. In this way, the Green Deal approach aids the implementation of sustainable initiatives.
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 to help sustainable initiatives get off the ground and to accelerate this process where possible. The Green Deal approach forms part of the green growth policy and is a joint initiative by the Dutch Ministries of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy (EZK), Infrastructure and the Watermanagement (I&W) and the Interior and Kingdom Relations (BZK).
The Green Deal approach is used to supplement existing instruments, such as legislation and regulation, market and financial incentives, and measures to stimulate innovation. The Green Deal approach is particularly suitable when innovations are actually put into practice, a phase during which projects often encounter barriers. Green Deals bring Central Government closer to companies, stakeholder organizations and interest groups. They give governments a more readily identifiable presence and the other players a clear point of contact.
A Green Deal is a mutual agreement or covenant under private law between a coalition of companies, civil society organizations and local and regional government. The deal defines the innovative initiative and the actions involved as clearly as possible (in quantitative aims or output, if possible) and it defines the input by the participants involved as clearly as possible.
Now that the Green Deal is more or less a fact that will be implemented, all climate companies cannot sit and wait. They have to make budgets and plans if they do not want to miss that opportunity and prepare and upgrade their proposition to their market.
A lot of homes are affected by condensation and mould growth with many factors contributing to this such as poor thermal performance of the building fabric, inadequate heating, lifestyles of occupants and inadequate ventilation. To avoid the degradation of building fabric and health issues caused by inadequate ventilation, the overall objective when refurbishing buildings is to create an ideal balance between heating, insulation and ventilation. Continuous ventilation should be high on the agenda. Ventilation should be considered when improving the air tightness of a dwelling as part of an energy efficiency package Green Deal.
What happened in The Netherlands?
Everybody can see what happened in The Netherlands when rules for energy neutral homes were implemented: there has been a strong growth of the residential climate market since.
A partnership with Airios/Resideo is very attractive. Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, has set the political priorities of her team for the next five years. Central to the agenda is the European Green Deal, which provides for more ambitious measures against crises in the area of climate and biodiversity. The EU has long been pursuing a policy against environmental damage and climate change, with varying degrees of success. An increasing call for action among the population offers the new Commission and the new European Parliament a unique opportunity to scale up and accelerate a green deal and just transition for Europe.
The Green Deal is led by Dutch people. In The Netherlands these regulations for energy saving homes resulted in a strong growth and the Netherlands became market leader in climate controls
