‘Green’ growth and the new industrial revolution

Global Green Growth Institute

The Grantham Research Institute is also supported by the Global Green Growth Institute (a treaty-based international organisation, with headquarters in Seoul, Korea) through a grant for US$2.16 million (£1.35 million) to fund several research project areas from 2012 to 2014.

This grant has supported work to understand better the link between environmental protection, growth and development. Its aim is to strengthen the analytical and empirical underpinnings of the ‘green growth’ concept in relation to both developing and developed countries.
