Eco-Innovation in Industry: Enabling Green Growth


More Description

Eco-innovation will be a key driver of industry efforts to tackle climate change and realise "green growth" in the post-Kyoto era. Eco-innovation calls for faster introduction of breakthrough technologies and for more systemic application of available solutions, including non-technological ones. It also offers opportunities to involve new players, develop new industries and increase competitiveness. Structural change in economies will be imperative in coming decades. This book presents the research and analysis carried out during the first phase of the OECD Project on Sustainable Manufacturing and Eco-innovation. Its aim is to provide benchmarking tools on sustainable manufacturing and to spur eco-innovation through better understanding of innovation mechanisms. It reviews the concepts and forms an analytical framework; analyses the nature and processes of eco-innovation; discusses existing sustainable manufacturing indicators; examines methodologies for measuring eco-innovation; and takes stock of national strategies and policy initiatives for eco-innovation. For more information about OECD work in this area, see www.oecd.org/sti/innovation/sustainablemanufacturing. Eco-Innovation in Industry: Enabling Green Growth is part of the OECD Innovation Strategy, a comprehensive policy strategy to harness innovation for stronger and more sustainable growth and development, and to address the key societal challenges of the 21st century. For more information about the OECD Innovation Strategy, see www.oecd.org/innovation/strategy. Eco-Innovation in Industry: Enabling Green Growth is also part of the OECD Green Growth Strategy, which will help OECD and non-OECD governments to identify policies that can achieve clean, resource-efficient, low-carbon economic growth and development.
