19. July 2019

Since the industrial revolution, our economies have delivered huge advances in material prosperity. Stemming from this development, economies are still measured and managed in ways that incentivise overconsumption, damage nature and social bonds, and drive climate change. Significant economic, societal and institutional changes are now needed if the Sustainable Development Goals and climate goals are to be achieved. Several major institutions working in the field have therefore met several times to share learning and combine efforts. They have now reached a consensus that nothing short of a fast and fair transformation of our economies is needed. In this document, Principles, Priorities and Pathways for Inclusive Green Economies: Economic transformation to deliver the SDGs, the collaborating institutions present a three-part framework to offer a coherent way to get to grips with the complexity of transformation towards greener, more equitable and resilient economies. The document is not a blueprint, but instead it enables stakeholders to reflect on progress, challenges and current plans, and to co-create a vision and approach that will work well in their context.
