Short description
Climate change, resource scarcity, biodiversity loss and a growing world population will compel us to establish even stronger links between the economy and ecology in the context of sustainable development. To achieve this, we need growth and innovation – both in industrialised countries and in developing and emerging economies. The way to a green economy provides enormous market opportunities. This side event will discuss the economic potential and the transition to a green economy.
