Copenhagen Capacity – OECD LEED workshop on Measuring the Potential of Green Growth.
Copenhagen Capacity is participating in the OECD LEED international project: ”Measuring the Potential of Green Growth: Indicators of Local Transition to a Low-Carbon Economy”. The purpose of the workshop is to feed into the overall goal of proposing a common set of key indicators to measure the potential of green growth and validate the local needs for specific green growth indicators. The workshop will discuss practices and experiences from the case of Copenhagen Cleantech Cluster, insights from international experts and other OECD experiences. The workshop will be held during the Green Week event, hosted by Copenhagen.
Rationale for the workshop
The continuing focus on the green economy and the emergence of Cleantech as a sector add pressure in the OECD countries to greening the activities of their economies. However, there is yet little information on how local regions can successfully monitor or document their transition to a greener economy. Nor is there any common understanding of how to define green jobs, green companies or green initiatives. The workshop in Copenhagen would discuss practices and experiences as regards indicators needed to analyze how local economies, companies, Cleantech clusters and regions adjust to the green economy and its potential.
The Copenhagen workshop will discuss measuring frameworks and indicators for green job creation, greening labour markets, change of production processes and company transformations; chiefly within the context of Copenhagen Cleantech Cluster and which particular indicators can best inform of the potential of green growth.
