Event description

Description

Sustainable economic growth requires countries to shift their production to "green products" that will drastically reduce environmental damage.

Seizing on the rapidly growing global environmental product industry, countries are building green export markets that allow companies to capture a new segment of the economy while connecting it to address environmental pressures.

Oxford economist Dr Alex Teytelboym and Penny Mealy are compiling a unique dataset on green exports, jobs, skills and patents and using tools from network theory to cluster exports and understand what countries are best poised for green growth in the future.

Alex will discuss how Australia can empower its energy industry to create and launch innovative green technologies for export to foreign markets.

The seminar will be followed by a panel discussion and a light lunch, courtesy of ANU Climate Change Institute, will be provided after the event.
