Description

Without urgent action, the global consequences of climate change will be devastating. Yet despite the environmental impact of rapid economic growth, increasing GDP (Gross Domestic Product) continues to remain the priority for countries around the world.  

So what is the future of economic growth? Can we achieve green growth that marries rapid environmental transformation with ever-rising financial returns? Or is it time to create economies that enable us to thrive, rather than grow, in order to stand a real chance at tackling climate change?
