New Climate Economy

The New Climate Economy project model:
By engaging directly with economic decision makers in both public and private sectors, by bringing together existing knowledge and experience, and through new research and analysis, its aims are to:
Examine the relationship between core economic goals, such as growth, investment, employment, poverty reduction and income distribution, and policies towards climate risk and mitigation 
Create a common, rigorous and unbiased understanding of the relative risks and opportunities of low- and high-carbon economic trajectories
Explore the possible pathways to a lower-carbon, more climate-resilient economy, and the choices and trade-offs involved in such a transition, including the speed of change
Analyse how such trade-offs can best be managed, both through public policy, and through the private actions of businesses and investors
Examine the implications for both core economic objectives and wider social outcomes such as improved health, energy security and food security, especially in the poorest countries
The goal 
After publication of its report in September 2014, the Commission will take its findings and recommendations directly to heads of government, finance and economic ministers, business leaders and investors throughout the world in a systematic outreach strategy. The results will be communicated to the wider economic community and civil society through a variety of global and national media channels.  The aim is to contribute to global debate about economic policy, and to inform the policies pursued by governments and the investment decisions of the business and finance sectors.
