Green Economy “Improving human well-being and social equity with zero carbon emissions”

04 Mar, 2014

The green economy is one that improves human well-being with a sustainable economy that has low to zero carbon emissions. A green economy will significantly reduce environmental risks and ecological scarcities. Likewise, a green economy has a one-planet footprint where all energy is derived from naturally replenished  renewable resources.

The growth of a green economy is driven by investments that reduce carbon emissions and pollution, enhance energy and resources efficiency, and prevents loss of biodiversity and ecosystems services.
