Abstract

This chapter argues that whilst specific policy instruments, industry standards, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have an important role to play in establishing climate targets, incentivising action and monitoring outcomes requires a more interdependent approach to drive green initiatives at all scales. I put forward a conceptual framework for mutually reinforcing mechanisms and incentives to promote ‘regenerative value’ based on the measurement of net sustainability outputs across different dimensions.
