Sustainable Growth and Environmental Innovation: Regulation and Social Responsibility?

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Sustainability, Economic Growth, Environmental Policy, Technological Progress, Social Responsibility

Sustainable economic growth is considered as implying a constant or declining flow of polluting emissions. This depends crucially on technological progress consisting on a continuous flow of environment friendly innovation. The paper shows that environmental regulation is necessary to achieve this outcome, but not sufficient. It must be integrated by an environmentally oriented technological policy and by widespread social responsibility of consumers and firms.
