Economic policies to foster green growth

Green growth and top reform priorities

Curbing emissions and pollution is crucial in ensuring that the gains in growth and well-being are sustainable in the long term. Hence, environmental considerations are key in the setting of national and global reform priorities. Going for Growth 2019 takes steps to integrate environmental sustainability in the reform priority selection framework. This chapter presents the details of this integration, summarises its results in terms of country-specific Going for Growth priorities and recommendations and outlines the future steps.

 

Can we reduce CO2 emissions without hurting jobs?

There have been concerns that the EU ETS’ main policy to reduce emissions would weaken European industry competitiveness.

Going for greener growth - what can indicators tell us?

A clean and healthy environment is essential for supporting economic activity and well-being in the long-term. Practically every economic and leisure activity – as well as life itself - has broadly-defined environment as a key input and could not exist without it. However, the relationship between the environment and GDP growth per se is more complex.

 

Environment and Trade

Less stringent policies give an advantage to more pollution-intensive production, but at the expense of less polluting industries. Read more on whether stricter environmental policies hurt export competitiveness.

Growth, Investment and Low-Carbon Transition

The Growth, Investment and the Low-Carbon Transition project analyses how low-emission and climate-resilient development can be achieved without compromising economic growth, competitiveness, or well-being across the G20 group of countries and beyond.

Environment and Productivity

Greener growth requires stringent environmental policies that are flexible and minimise barriers to entry and competition. The choice and implementation of environmental policy instruments is likely to be crucial. Flexible, market based instruments such as taxes and trading schemes are found to be more friendly to productivity growth.

Do environmental policies matter for productivity growth?

Pollution Havens? Energy prices are not key drivers of offshoring

The Pollution Haven Hypothesis argues that firms will seek to avoid the cost of stringent environmental regulations (and high energy prices) by locating production in countries where environmental norms are laxer. Pollution havens? Energy prices are not key drivers of offshoring
