The overall objective of this stream of work is to provide policy advice to help governments guide the development and deployment of eco-innovation in the context of the implementation of Green Growth strategies.
The work covers a variety of topics:
The Environmental Technology Action Plan compiles roadmaps developed by members of the European Union to support eco-innovation (see http://ec.europa.eu/environment/etap/index_en.htm). The OECD is developing country profiles for non European OECD members and selected non members: see the country profiles below. In addition, analytic work supports policy recommendations. A selection is shared below.
EventGlobal Forum on Eco-Innovation
In November 2009, the OECD organised a Global Forum on Environment focused on Eco-innovation. The objectives of the Global Forum were to take stock of what we know on policies to support eco-innovation (based on work done at the OECD and elsewhere), and to discuss policy challenges. The agenda of the Global Forum, the proceedings and papers developed for the Global Forum are available at a dedicated webpage.
