Green Economy (2014)

Economic growth is on top of the political agenda in most countries. Yet current growth paths are putting extreme pressures on our planet and its resources. Business as usual is not an option. This understanding has led to strong calls for transforming growth into greener growth or green economy.  It has also led to development of green growth plans and policies to steer investments and economies in a more sustainable direction. The shift will be gradual, involve winners and losers and differ between countries.
