"GreenTech made in Germany" mainly focuses on increase in energy efficiency, material efficiency, waste management and recycling, sustainable mobility, sustainable water management and environmentally friendly power generation and storage. They are all key green markets of the future. Environmental technologies generated around 8% of Germany's GDP in 2007. By 2020, this share will have climbed to 14%. In 2007 they already represented a global market volume of around 1,400 billion euro, and this will probably more than double to 3,100 billion euro by 2020.
