Policy Tools That Support Transition Into a Green Economy: Regulations and standards

December 23, 2013

A number of policy tools are available to assist governments and other stakeholders pursue the transition into a green economy.

This is one of four briefing notes used to set the stage for discussion for the TomorrowNow—Manitoba’s Green Plan consultations focused on the green economy. They outline some of the policy tools that are available to foster transition and provide examples of how these tools have led to positive outcomes in other jurisdictions. In and of themselves, these tools do not create a green economy; rather, they help put the conditions in place for the transition to occur. Note that these are not implied recommendations, but are examples of real case studies. This briefing note focuses on regulations and standards.
