Green industrial policy: concept, policies, country experiences

The Green Industrial Policy: Concept, Policies, Country Experiences report, jointly produced by UN Environment and the German Development Institute (DIE) in the framework of the Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE), provides an overview of the debate on green industrial policy, highlights what countries can gain economically from pursuing environmental integrity, and explores the policy options available to accelerate the transformation in ways that enhance both human well-being and environmental sustainability. A special focus is given to developing countries, because of their need for growth and their high potential for transformation, as they are not yet locked into unsustainable pathways. Practical examples are included in all chapters, and four national examples of successful green structural change are presented in detail, covering countries at very different levels of income and technological capacity (namely, China, Morocco, Brazil and Germany).
