Description/achievement of initiative

The Government and its social partners signed the Green Economy Accord on 17 November 2011 as an outcome of social dialogue on the New Growth Path.
The Accord launches a green partnership to create large numbers of jobs, provide a spur for industrialisation and help to create a sustainable future for this and the next generation. It is one of a series of agreements in which social partners commit to work together to achieve the goals of the New Growth Path. The Accord helps lay a basis for greater employment creation and equality, and sets out how South Africans can participate in the green technological revolution now sweeping the planet.
