Its approach emphasizes the interdependency between “people, plant and profit”. A Green Economy led by entrepreneurship, innovation, new technologies and smart policies will influence a collaborative shift from a brown economy dependent on fossil fuels, to green growth which operates within ecological limits by using low carbon technologies. It aims at meeting the dual goals of human development and low ecological impact.
