Status of initiative: N/a
Description/achievement of initiative

- to promote a more common understanding of green economy.
- to assist in the development and implementation of policies and actions towards a green economy.
- to build a platform for future action and collaboration.

Implementation methodologies

The first step is the launch of the ICC Green Economy Roadmap a guide for business, policymakers and society during Rio+20, including sharing best practices, lessons learnt and calls for collaboration.

Recognizing that a green economy requires the need to reconcile long, medium and short term vision and actions, the ICC Green Economy Roadmap outlines ten conditions and related policy recommendations as a framework to discuss a range of inter-linked policies and actions for a transition towards a green economy - by business as a part of society as well as in collaboration with other actors in society. The Roadmap also has a clearing house function to share existing best practice and initiate new collaborative activities.

The Roadmap is a forward-looking document meant to serve as a reference document for current and future actions. We hope that it will be a useful tool for integrating sustainability into business strategies or government policy frameworks.
