What are Prosperity Agreements?
Prosperity Agreements are voluntary agreements through which NIEA and an organisation can explore opportunities for reducing environmental impacts in ways that create prosperity and well being.
A Prosperity Agreement is about economic prosperity and is a tool for NIEA to help key partners see the environment as a way to achieve this.
