To improve the efficiency of greenhouse horticulture by 65%, relative to 1980, the Dutch government has supported the industry in reducing the use of fossil energy, in growing production and use of renewable energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The government uses a negotiated agreement with the horticulture industry (Glami Convenant) and efficiency standards (Greenhouse Horticulture Orders in Council). This is a public-private partnership with costs shared. Energy Targets are: average improvement of 2% energy efficiency per year (2011-2020), maximum emission ceiling 6,35 (horticulture) in 2020, share of 20% renewable energy in 2020
