Since 2007, the Green Transition Scoreboard® has tracked private investments in creating cleaner, greener economies globally.

If we continue to invest at least $1 trillion per year until 2020, we will be leaving the fossil fueled industrial era and entering a new solar age based on principles of equity, sustainability, and biomimicry.

This green transition is happening at an extraordinary rate, accelerated by international agreements in 2012 by the G-20, Rio+20, OECD, UNDP and the United Nations General Assembly.

This supplement to the February 2012 report focuses on investments that companies are making in green research and development (R&D).
