The OECD Green Growth Strategy supports countries in fostering economic growth and development while ensuring that natural assets continue to provide the resources and environmental services on which well-being relies. 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 and gauge results.

This book updates the 2011 Towards Green Growth: Monitoring progress. It presents the OECD framework for monitoring progress towards green growth and a selection of updated indicators that illustrate the progress that OECD countries have made since the 1990s.

Green growth indicators in practice

Since 2011, practical applications of green growth indicators have progressed. Governments use the OECD framework to develop indicators appropriate for their national circumstances and to assess the state of their economy in terms of green growth. Green growth indicators are also being integrated into OECD work, including country reviews and policy analysis. A database bringing together the indicators has been established to this end. Feedback from these applications is important to further elaborate and refine the indicator set, and to share experiences and good practices. To achieve synergies at a broader scale, international co-operation is essential. The OECD works with the Global Green Growth Institute, UNEP and the World Bank within the framework of the Green Growth Knowledge Platform to promote common approaches and advance knowledge about the measurement of green growth.
