Green and growth can - and should - go hand in hand. There is a growing conviction across countries that we need a greener growth model. For that reason, the OECD Ministerial Council Meeting in June 2009 adopted a Declaration on Green Growth, which invited the OECD to develop a Green Growth Strategy with the aim of achieving economic recovery and environmentally and socially sustainable economic growth. The Korean government is already actively promoting a green growth agenda. Other countries, both within the OECD and outside, are elaborating their own strategies for green growth.

To help identify future strategies for Green Growth, the OECD and Korean Ministry of Knowledge Economy jointly held a workshop on “Delivering Green Growth” on 4-5 March 2010, in Seoul, Korea. This two-day workshop was attended by over 400 participants from business, academia, research institutes, public organizations and governments.

Thirty-seven experts from eight countries and the OECD contributed to the presentation and discussion on a wide range of strategic topics on green growth: challenges and opportunities for industries, innovation and green growth, implications for growth and job creation, and policy approaches to foster green growth.
