The UNEP-led Green Economy Initiative was launched in 2008. It defines green economy as one that results in improved human well-being and significantly reducing environmental risks – one whose growth in income and employment is driven by public and private investments that reduce carbon emissions and pollution, enhance energy and resource efficiency, and prevent the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services.

UNEP/GRID-Warsaw Centre aims at engaging businesses in development of the Green Economy Initiative in Poland – to move them from being customers, also to become co-creators and active participants of actions performed.
