Sir Nicholas Stern said “it raises living standards, provides opportunity, and shows very clearly that there is absolutely no contradiction between looking after our planet, looking after our environment, and overcoming poverty.”

“The goals of sustainable development can only be really met if we actively engage in a green economy.”
