Some examples are: the processors of organic food products and the technology used in various ways in the agro-food cluster; companies that work in bio-building in the construction cluster; transportation with a low environmental impact in the automotive engineering field. In addition, more general sectors include research into new materials and the supply of machinery, as well as newly emerging sectors such as renewable energy and energy efficiency. On the other hand, the traditional «green» sectors are represented by waste management and water treatment. Regarding services, those with environmental certification also play an important role.
