Chapter 15: Green growth in South Korea
Based on the green growth concept in a broad sense, this chapter examines the evolution of South Korea’s green growth strategy under the previous two administrations and assesses the performance of and political momentum for green growth. In particular, the chapter focuses on green growth strategies relevant to energy and greenhouse gas emission issues. Since the salient motivation for South Korea to be immersed in green growth was high dependence on fossil fuel, the measures to achieve energy independence and low carbon energy were the core parts of South Korea’s green growth strategies. By exploring the major progress of green growth and assessing its performance, this chapter discusses the path towards a low-carbon society that South Korea is following.
