The Green Economy Coalition is the largest, multi-stakeholder alliance working on greeneconomy. We are made up o think-tanks, environmental and development NGOs, tradeunions, businesses and UN bodies. Despite our dierences we have come togetherbecause we recognise that the current economic order is ailing our constituencies –rom our global workers, poor and marginalised groups and local communities, tothe planet. As our work has evolved, we have built an online global network o activecontributors who are sharing their expertise and perspectives on the transition togreener, airer economies.

This publication describes a vision or change. It providesa snapshot o the opportunities, as well as the questions,presented by a shit to a green economy or communities,or governments and or businesses. It describes glimpsesand gives examples o a transition that is already underwaybut has yet to be taken to scale. It connects some o the dotsbetween the many dierent actions going on at all levels –civil society, government, inance, business – to show howwe can evolve our economies to work or people and planet.This is our vision or a green economy – one ounded on airnessand inclusion, and respecting planetary boundaries.
We believe it is possible.We know it is necessary.We invite you to be part of it.
A green economy is about a dierent wayo doing things. It is about recognisingthat our economies need to be guided bydierent goals, they need to be sustainedby dierent activities, and they need todeliver dierent results.
