Investing in the green economy will be key to overcoming the employment crisis in the EU and driving economic growth. In order for the Commission’s integrated policy approach to work an environmental focus needs to be prioritised at Member State level as well. This review looks at whether and to what extent national and regional governments have refocused their policy efforts towards green sectors, and the nature of the policy efforts pursued. The European policy context for promoting transition to green growth is examined and the types of national/regional policies and measures identified, before the findings and lessons are summarised.
