Green Growth

Green Growth was identified by the Commission as one of its key priorities if we are to achieve a sustainable Wales, and since 2012 we have hosted a number of roundtable discussions and events to engage business, public and the third sector and to discuss and develop a route map to a green economy for Wales.

A cross-departmental Green Growth steering group is chaired by Peter Davies and reports to both the Ministers for Economy and Natural Resources on progress.

Welsh Government’s prospectus on Green Growth Wales: Investing in the Future was launched in July 2014 and outlines how the sustainable use of natural resources can create a new economic model that will deliver wealth creation and economic growth today and in to the future.
