Developing key indicators of green growth

Greening the economy has been widely discussed as a new strategy for simultaneously reducing environmental pressures, promoting economic growth and enhancing social well-being. Indicators are one tool that can be used to describe the development of green growth. This paper presents and evaluates the process of attempting to build a set of policy-relevant key indicators of green growth for Finland. It is argued that both the experts preparing the indicators and the potential users will benefit from a collaborative process when developing the indicators.
