2018 World Green Economy Report
Inspiring innovations in business, finance and policy
This report was commissioned by the World Green Economy Organisation to advance the sustainability agenda. It aims to illustrate the diversity and depth of innovation that is already underway towards a green economy and to highlight opportunities and priorities for action.
Shifting to a green economy will require more than marginal improvements to the innovations that underpin our economy– including technologies; products, service and business models; management practices; collaborative initiatives; and, rules and regulations. The report focuses on select best practices and innovative solutions in business, finance and policy.
The report defines a ‘green economy’ as an “economic system that is low carbon, climate-resilient, resource-efficient and socially-inclusive”. As such, a green economy helps address today’s pressing priorities while giving direction for tomorrow’s success.
