Towards a green economy: pathways to sustainable and poverty eradication

United Nations Environment Programme (2011)

This report 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.
