Policies that promote green growth need to be founded on a good understanding of the determinants of green growth and need to be supported with appropriate indicators to monitor progress. This book is an update of the 2014 edition.
Delivering the quality of growth to which citizens aspire requires concerted action across countries and within ministries invested in green growth – finance, economy, industry, trade and agriculture, among others.
This report provides information on the results achieved by OECD and G20 countries since 1990. The indicators help answer four questions that are at the heart of green growth:
- How to be more efficient in using natural resources and environmental services?
- How does greening the economy generate opportunities for growth and development?
- Is the natural asset base of our economies maintained?
- Does greening growth generate benefits for people?
