Green Growth

Research line leader: Carlo Jaeger

Goal of the process

Investigate the complex dynamics of rule evolution and equilibrium selection to identify win-win options that achieve emissions reductions while overcoming poverty and unemployment.

Major findings

With a consistent set of policies, the European Union and its member states can trigger a shift from the present state of minimal growth and recurrent financial turmoil to a green growth path. Along that path, sustainable investment can be used to solve long-term problems like public debt and climate change.
