Green growth and sustainable development

Consultation on the OECD Green Growth Strategy


The OECD is preparing policy recommendations and practical tools for governments to move towards greener growth. The Interim Report of the Green Growth Strategy, presented to the Ministerial Council Meeting (MCM) in May 2010, contains preliminary findings on a number of key issues. The Synthesis Report will be delivered to the MCM in May 2011 and will address a broader range of issues. The OECD welcomes comments on the Synthesis Report as it develops.


The Green Growth Strategy Workshop, 10-11 February 2011, brought together policymakers and experts across OECD and partner countries, as well as a range of stakeholders from international organisations, business, and civil society to review the first draft of the Synthesis Report.
