Main objective is to deliver mechanisms for greening economies, adjusted to the boundaries of the ecological system, which utilize place-specific and scarce resources efficiently and in a socially/culturally sustainable way. Such an economy is low-carbon, resource efficient, socially just, and enhances investments which enhance the earth's natural capital or reduce ecological scarcities and environmental risks. Greening Economies also delivers knowledge how post-liberal values, corporate/social responsibility and cooperation contribute to economies for the private/public good.
