CCS Provides Authorship, Application of Global Green Growth Practices

The Center for Climate Strategies (CCS) is pleased to announce a new report “Green Growth in Practice: Lessons from Country Experiences” sponsored by the Climate Development Network, European Climate Foundation, and Global Green Growth Institute. The report, developed by over 75 international authors, covers 60 international case studies and systematic best practices and benefits for Green Growth and Low Emissions Development Strategies (LEDS).

Tom Peterson of CCS contributed expert authorship for the Planning and Coordination chapter of the report. He notes, “Leaders across the globe see the value of reducing our footprint on energy and natural resources through strategies and investments that drive valued added, safe, and sustainable economic growth.”

On July 1 at 7am EST, the "Green Growth in Practice: Lessons from Country Experiences" will be presented in London, UK in a live stream webinar event. Register for the event here.

CCS specializes in collaborative approaches for economic growth, energy needs, and environmental protection using comprehensive, multi objective, stakeholder driven, planning and analysis. Since 2004 CCS has helped over 20 US States and the Border States of Mexico formulate comprehensive climate action plans; the Provinces of China develop the Low Carbon Development (LCD) Planning and Analysis Toolkit; Ukraine’s launch of the Municipal Energy Reform Project and Enhancing Capacity LEDS Program; local emissions inventories and forecasts for the Philippines; and others.
