Green technology and innovation

Reducing global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and protecting environmental assets will require innovation and the large-scale adoption of green technologies. Without innovation, it will be very difficult and very costly to sustain current growth trajectories while addressing major environmental issues such as climate change. Consequently, OECD governments and emerging economies are giving priority to R&D activities and incentives for the diffusion and adoption of green technologies.
