The framework of the transition to the "green economy" was adopted by the decree of the President of Kazakhstan in May 2013. The Action Plan for its implementation was adopted by the decision of the government. "The framework lays the foundation for deep changes in the system in order to move the economy to a new formation by raising the living standards of the population of Kazakhstan and propelling the country into the 30 most developed countries in the world while minimizing the impact on the environment and degradation of natural resources." This is how the framework is described in the "Strategy 2050." As usual Kazakhstan's business publications touched upon the subject in articles.
