The Green Growth Policy Agenda

The Green Growth Policy Agenda

(p.123) 6 The Green Growth Policy Agenda
A Good Life on a Finite Earth

Daniel J. Fiorino

Oxford University Press

The concept of green growth offers both a means of reframing ecology–economy relationships and defining an agenda for change. This chapter sets out the framework for a green growth policy agenda. This agenda builds upon existing strategies and tools, such as use of mandatory technology or performance standards, but also is distinctive in expanding the scope of policymaking, emphasizing ecology–economy positive-sums, looking beyond ecological to other policy sectors, granting critical ecosystems principled priority in decisions, and incorporating social costs. As for tools, the green growth agenda relies heavily on market-like mechanisms such as pollution taxes or trading, on methods for valuing ecosystems services, and on reorienting investment strategies for green sectors and goals. In sum, there exists a rich and varied green growth policy agenda that may support a transition toward green growth.

Keywords:   policy agenda, green investments, ecosystem services, market tools, emissions/effluent trading, energy efficiency, clean energy, green infrastructure
