Green Economy[edit]

A green economy is one whose growth in income and employment is motivated by public and private investments that reduce carbon emissions and pollution, enhance energy and resource efficiency, and prevent the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services. These investments also need to be supported by public expenditure, policy reforms and regulation changes. This path of development should maintain or even rebuild natural capital as an important economic asset to the local community.
