Netherlands Sustainability Green Plan by Huey Johnson
|Green Plans are comprehensive management plans that have the final goal of achieving environmental and economic sustainability. They are integrated, all-inclusive strategies that replace traditional single-issue policies. Green Plans have been implemented in several regions of the world including New Zealand, the Netherlands and other European Union countries. Huey Johnson, a long time advocate of these plans, has introduced them to parts of the United States. Mr. Johnson stands behind the idea that these plans are capable of managing Climate Change.
Adopted in 1989, the National Environmental Policy Plan (NEPP) of the
Netherlands has been the longest running example of a green plan. With
life-threatening environmental problems such as congestion and heavy
industry the Netherlands is a microcosm of the threats facing this
planet today, but by implementing these plans they have recovered from
environmental problems in less than 20 years.
