UNEP (2011) Towards a Green Economy: Pathways to Sustainable Development and Poverty Eradication
,by: United Nations Environment
The 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.
