OECD project on growth, investment and the low-carbon transition
In the context of the German G20 Presidency, the OECD undertook this major project on the economic growth and investment implications of the transition to a low-carbon, climate resilient economy:

The OECD-hosted international conference, in collaboration with the German Ministry of Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety and in conjunction with the Petersberg Climate Dialogueconference took place in the context of the German G20 presidency and attended by decision-makers from a large number of countries, business representatives as well as high-level actors of international co-operation.
The OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría presented the results of this major report which provides a ground-breaking analysis of how low-emission and climate-resilient development can be achieved without compromising economic growth, competitiveness or well-being.
The programme and some of the questions debated at the event:
- How can governments ensure that climate-friendly growth policies provide a major boost to short-term growth while increasing longer-term resilience?
- What development pathways will get us to the Paris Agreement outcomes?
- How do investment flows need to change to get us there? What are the growth and structural implications of going low carbon?
- How can governments create the conditions to drive a prosperous transition?
- Press release: Taking action on climate change will boost economic growth, says OECD

Watch OECD Environment Director Simon Upton presenting key findings from the report during a Green Talks LIVE webinar held on 22 June 2017.
The report shows that integrating measures to tackle climate change into regular economic policy will have a positive impact on economic growth over the medium and long term.
A climate-friendly policy package can increase long-run output by up to 2.8% on average across the G20 by 2050 and if avoided climate damage are also taken into account, this rises to nearly 5%.
