Going Green: How cities are leading the next economy

Going Green: How cities are leading the next economy is the concluding report of our major global survey of city governments and in depth case studies in a selected number of innovative cities. The survey was conducted by LSE Cities, ICLEI and the Global Green Growth Institute, in order to closely analyse the strengths and weaknesses of cities as key contributors to the global green transformation.

Going Green offers a fresh perspective on the environmental challenges that cities face, along with the opportunities and barriers to going green and fostering economic growth. The survey covers key aspects of green policies and the green economy, smart city technology, green policy assessment and urban governance. It provides a comprehensive overview of the experiences of cities around the world as they make the transition to a green economy.

This edition includes:

  • A completely new section featuring an overview of green economy policies across six sectors: land-use, transport, buildings, energy, waste, and water.
  • An overview of the types of economic impacts arising from green policy across sectors, and the roles played by different levels of government.
  • A detailed section outlining the experience of eight case study cities in facilitating green growth, across four cross-cutting policy areas: land-use and transport; eco-districts and buildings; waste, recycling and energy; and electric mobility and renewable energy.
