The document should include department-wise mapping of green budgeting based on its environmental sustainability relevance is mapped for budgetary allocation, activities, and SDGs. The green budget document should give a summary of the entire statement, with special reference to the identified budget vs. allocated budget in the current and next financial year.

The annexure can include detailed tables of department-wise proposed activities or plans for the upcoming financial year, considering Budgetary Range Categories based on their proportion of ‘environmental sustainability relevance’.
