BIG-E

The Batumi Initiative on Green Economy (BIG-E) is a set of voluntary commitments by interested countries and organisations to undertake green economy actions. BIG-E serves to operationalize the Pan-European Strategic Framework for Greening the Economy over the period 2016-2030. Taken together, the Strategic Framework and BIG-E provide countries and stakeholders from the pan-European region with a road map to speed up the transition to a green economy. In total, over 30 countries and organisations have submitted more than 100 commitments to the BIG-E and pledges will continue to be made until 2018.
