Green growth is the best economic path forward

All the economic indicators are clear that investing in a high-growth, high productivity, low-carbon future, offers a better rate of return than the conventional equivalent in both the short & long term.

It makes more sense to borrow now to invest in the transition if you have a good credit rating, rather than in the future when the rating is at risk. That way economies can be more climate-resilient, their credit ratings are more likely to remain intact and debt will remain cheap”
