The 2nd Green Economies Dialogue took place in Paris on November 14 and was hosted by the Business and Industry Advisory Committee (BIAC) to the OECD. The Paris Dialogue drew on the work on green growth carried out by the OECD and actively engaged representatives from different parts of the Organisation. Specific sessions focused on:

  • green growth for development and job creation;
  • policy instruments;
  • energy;
  • and resource efficiency.

Opening Remarks were made by Tadahiro Asami, BIAC; Norine Kennedy, USCIB; Simon Upton, OECD. Norine Kennedy (below)
