Green Industrial Policy: Concept, Policies, Country Experiences
United Nations Environment Programme

“Green industrial policy: Concept, policies, country Experiences” is a joint publication by UN Environment and the German Development Institute/ Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE). It illustrates how green industrial policy can be a driver for a green economy transformation and highlights the social, environmental and economic co-benefits of green industrial policy. Economic development in the age of industrialization has been achieved at the cost of severe overexploitation of natural resources. Humanity is approaching various ecological tipping points beyond which abrupt and irreversible environmental change at large geographical scale is likely to happen. reen industrial policy instruments can support the transition to economic structures that balance environmental sustainability and wealth creation and help catalyse the needed change towards a sustainable future. The report provides valuable insights and background knowledge for policy-makers and academia and paints a detailed picture of the state of research into green industrial policy. With case studies from China, Morocco, Brazil and Germany, the report illustrates efforts for structural change around the world. A special focus is given to developing countries, because of their need for growth and their high potential for transformation, as they are not yet locked into unsustainable pathways.

The Emissions Gap Report 2017: A UN Environment Synthesis Report
United Nations Environment Programme

The eighth UN Environment Emissions Gap Report provides an up-to-date scientific assessment of the global progress towards the emissions reductions required to be on track to meet the long-term goal of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The overall conclusion of the assessment is that government and other stakeholder’s emissions reduction commitments are far from the level of ambition required for an emissions pathway consistent with staying below a 2°C, let alone a 1.5°C, temperature increase.

Global Material Flows and Resource Productivity: Assessment Report for the UNEP International Resource Panel
United Nations Environment Programme, International Resource Panel

This report finds that global material use has tripled over the past four decades, with annual global extraction of materials growing from 22 billion tonnes (1970) to 70 billion tonnes (2010). It also provides a new material footprint indicator, reporting the amount of materials that are required for final consumption, which sheds light on the true impact of economies. By relating global supply chains to final demand for resources, the indicator is a good proxy for the average material standard of living in a country. It indicates that the level of development and well-being in wealthy industrial countries has been achieved largely through highly resource-intensive patterns of consumption and production, which are not sustainable, even less replicable to other parts of the world.

Faces of Change
United Nations Environment Programme

It’s easy to get bogged down in the debate and forget the human face of climate change. Climate change is not just an abstract debate over statistics – it’s about people and the impacts they’re facing but it’s also about people taking action. Yet, the stories are often untold . UN Environment has teamed up with renowned photo-journalists to put a face on some of the good initiatives underway. For the first time, this series of images will reveal these extraordinary ‘Faces of Change’ to the rest of the world.
