GREEN ECONOMY

Green economy is the key factor in overcoming the negative consequences of global climate change. Green economy, as defined by UNEP, is the one that results in improved human well-being and social equity, while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities. A green economy is low-carbon, resource efficient, and socially inclusive. In a green economy, growth in income and employment are driven by public and private investments that reduce carbon emissions and pollution, enhance energy and resource efficiency, and prevent the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services.

Innovative green technologies and services in the following sectors will be presented:

  • Green renewable energy
  • Water resources
  • Green transport
  • Waste management
  • Green industry
  • Green construction
  • Tourism
  • Urban Economy
