Description

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 and address environmental pressures.

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

Dr Alex Teytelboym and his colleage 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.
