Green economics refers to the discipline in which economists and businesses pursue policies that are conducive to minimizing environmental and ecological damage and therefore sustainable development.
Progress in Green Economics primarily focuses on developments in the transition of different industries and sectors to a sustainable, environment-friendly economic model.

Each chapter is organized into reader-friendly sections and is supplemented with references for the benefit of more involved scholars.
The multi-regional perspectives, along with the theoretical and practical information on the topic make this reference a timely and handy resource on green economics and sustainable development for academics, scholars, industrialists, policymakers and economics enthusiasts alike.
