The plan is a follow-up to a decision  in which the majority of the Danish parliament's parties urge the government to develop a plan of action. The plan also follows up the government's policy on 'Green technology and bio-fuel' and the European Council's request that Member Countries contribute to the implementation of the EU environmental technology plan of action, ETAP.
