Green growth: opportunities for NZ
prepared for the NZ Green Growth Research Trust Final report November 2012
This report shows that there are important economic opportunities for an agricultural trading nation such as New Zealand in rapidly transitioning to green growth. For instance, humanity needs to develop technologies to provide food for 9-10 billion people within a few decades. New Zealand has an enormous opportunity to develop a high-yield, low-emissions agricultural system that would both increase national prosperity and contribute to solving a major global problem. More broadly, the green growth transition can protect New Zealand’s current competitive advantages and globally respected clean green brand, and create new sources of wealth. This report identifies 21 specific green growth opportunities that build on existing policy in important areas; these represent a good start to charting a green growth pathway for New Zealand.Sorry!
