We are dedicated to defining the macroeconomics of green growth.
Political leaders on all levels – city, state, national, regional – are currently embracing green growth strategies. The concept of green growth is, however, still in its infancy and there is a fundamental lack of knowledge; what are the macroeconomics of green growth? What is the role of the private sector? What are the necessary areas of innovation? What is the interplay between policy, technology, innovation and business? What are the best practice models and the necessary public-private partnerships?
Below, Green Growth Leaders has selected a number of the most important reports, studies and findings from leading institutions globally on green growth.
