Green Economy is a new model of economic development. Its aim is to manage the economy in harmony with nature and the environment.

Achieving this aim requires a complete modernization of the economy. While new green sectors are created, existing branches of industry are ‘greened’, a process which includes changes in how we deal with resources and emissions. For example, product design and production processes must be adjusted to ensure that there is less waste and lower consumption of raw materials.
