"Enabling the transition to a green economy: government and business working together" sets out the government's approach to building the green economy and forms part of the continuing dialogue between government, business and communities on how to tackle the important issue of moving to a Green Economy.

It has been developed by Defra, BIS and DECC in response to requests from the private sector for greater clarity on what government means by a "green economy", the policies being put in place to achieve this, and how they come together.
