Towards Green Growth?

Tracking Progress

image of Towards Green Growth?

The 2011 Green Growth Strategy provided initial guidance to governments on how to achieve economic growth and development, while preventing costly environmental damage and inefficient resource use. What progress have countries made in aligning economic and environmental priorities since 2011? This report attempts to evaluate this progress and highlight where there is broad scope to heighten the ambition and effectiveness of green growth policy. It draws lessons from green growth mainstreaming across the OECD’s work programme, notably in terms of how governments can maximise institutional settings to seize economic opportunities surrounding the transition to a green economy, and considers ways to enrich the Green Growth Strategy based on work undertaken since its launch.

Foreword and acknowledgements

Towards Green Growth? Tracking Progress takes stock of country experience in implementing green growth since 2011. The 2011 OECD Green Growth Strategy provided important first guidance to governments on how to implement green growth by fostering economic growth and development, while ensuring that natural assets continue to provide the resources and environmental services vital to human well-being. Green growth implies transforming current modes of production and consumption across the entire economy at a global scale so as not to simply displace unsustainable production and consumption patterns. This report assesses common challenges experienced by OECD countries and partner economies since 2011 in aligning economic and environmental priorities for green growth. It seeks to accelerate progress by highlighting where there is scope to heighten the ambition and effectiveness of green growth policy in order to help countries seize available opportunities.
