The Green Economy Report is compiled by UNEP’s Green Economy Initiative in collaboration with economists and experts worldwide. It demonstrates that the greening of economies is not generally a drag on growth but rather a new engine of growth; that it is a net generator of decent jobs, and that it is also a vital strategy for the elimination of persistent poverty. The report also seeks to motivate policy makers to create the enabling conditions for increased investments in a transition to a green economy.

The report includes chapters on the following areas:

  • Agriculture
  • Fisheries
  • Water
  • Forests
  • Renewable Energy
  • Manufacturing
  • Waste
  • Buildings
  • Transport
  • Tourism
  • Cities
  • Modelling
  • Finance
