ICC Green Economy Roadmap – a guide for business, policymakers and society (2012)
The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) is pleased to present the ICC Green Economy Roadmap – a guide for business, policymakers and society to assist in the development and implementation of policies and actions towards a “green economy”.
Recognizing that a green economy requires the need to reconcile long, medium and short-term vision and actions, the ICC Green Economy Roadmap outlines ten conditions and related policy recommendations as a framework to discuss a range of inter-linked policies and actions for a transition towards a green economy – by business as a part of society as well as in collaboration with other actors in society.
This guide includes the following ten high-level conditions which are supported by concrete intra-industry/business and collaborative action recommendations as well as best practice examples:
- Open and competitive markets
- Metrics, accounting, and reporting
- Finance and investment
- Life cycle approach
- Resource efficiency and decoupling
- Education and skills
- Governance and partnership
- Integrated policy and decision-making
Please see the annex for the best practice examples.
