This paper offers a more rigorous concept of green growth in order that the conditions for its implementation may then be identified. Growth is understood here in its traditional economic sense: an increase in wealth measured in terms of production, income or living conditions. Growth is, a priori, neither “good” nor “bad”.

Growth is termed “green” when it properly treats natural capital as an essential factor of production, alongside labor and physical capital.
