Transitioning to a Green Economy
IMPROVE LANDSCAPES. CONNECT COMMUNITIES.
The ABI partnership recognises that economic growth and action on environmental conservation can be achieved together. What’s more, actions taken to tackle environmental conservation can often generate better economic growth.
So ABI’s ‘Transitioning to a Green Economy’ theme aims:
- To create awareness among our partners, local municipalities, communities, land owners and the business sector, that the Green Economy offers opportunities to create ‘better economic growth’.
- And to be a catalyst in the emerging Green Economy in the Overberg by identifying opportunities and searching for funding and investments for projects.
Why the green economy is important?
The green economy is a critical part of sustainable development that offers the opportunity to bring together the environmental, social and economic concerns of the Overberg. It is a way of ensuring harmony between these three, equally important, sectors of our society. Economic growth in the greater Overberg and action on environmental conservation can be achieved together. The green economy shows us that actions taken to tackle environmental conservation can often generate better economic growth.
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED IN THE GREEN ECONOMY?
If you are already involved in the green economy or if you are interested in it, if you think that you can contribute in whatever form, then please, we want to know about you. This allows us to start to make meaningful linkages and work towards symbiotic relationships that can benefit a growing number of people.
