although van Dale (Dutch) says that 'vergroening' is the opposite of 'general aging of the population' (thus something like a demographic shift towards a younger population), I think that here, in the context of 'duurzame ontwikkeling', it means 'greening' in the sense of the promotion or development of environemntally-responsible or environmentally-beneficial projects and activities.
