In 2017 the OECD undertook a major project on the economic growth and investment implications of the transition to a low-carbon, climate resilient economy in the context of the German G20 Presidency. The resulting report "Investing in Climate, Investing in Growth" provides an analysis of how climate goals can be achieved while simultaneously spurring economic growth, competitiveness and well-being.
