edie Explains: The Green recovery

Last updated: 12th August 2020

What is the green recovery? Where does business sustainability fit into its wider context? What is happening at a policy level? And what does the future hold for green recovery efforts? This edie Explains guide answers all of these questions and more.

The green recovery refers to the opportunity for government, business and society to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic in a way that is environmentally and socially sustainable.

Proponents of the green recovery believe that the solutions to coronavirus and climate change can converge in a way that accelerates the transition to a net-zero-carbon, circular economy.

Businesses are still awaiting certainty that national efforts, spearheaded by governments, to recover from the coronavirus pandemic will strengthen low-carbon and circular markets. In fact, very few corporate bailouts have been tied to environmental standards. With this in mind, the new Explains guide outlines the business implications of the green recovery, and how policy frameworks could shape new green markets.

The guide has been produced with assistance from supporting partners Centrica Business Solutions and explains everything you need to know about the green recovery.
