Background

Over the past decades, rapid growth of global economic has lifted millions of people out of poverty. In line with rising population, rapid urbanization, and industrialization, it has also led to increased consumption of resources and generated waste almost beyond the limits of the ecological carrying capacity.

The coming decades will likely witness the increasing pressures on industries to shift to more resource-efficient and low-carbon production processes as part of global efforts to sustain growth, conserve resources and slow down the pace of climate change. Countries and regions that have successfully managed this transition will be in a better position to maximize the opportunities created by the shift towards a low-carbon world economy. It is green industry’s initiation, a pattern of industrial development that is sustainable in economic, environment and social.
