Green Growth: A blueprint for the future?

Publication date:
December 2012
The IES believes that the positive promotion of 'green' growth might lead to a solution to a number of interlinking crises. It is within this context that we are publishing this issue of the environmental SCIENTIST which seeks to: act as an introduction to 'green' growth and environmental economics; highlight some of the good environmental practices and environmental innovations already taking place; and paint a vision of how a bold 'green' growth agenda could solve the current financial crisis.
