Abstract—Emerging global threats to “Our Common
Future” require much greater collective action, improved
benefit sharing from natural resource development. This needs
a new moral imperative linked to equitable outcomes, and equal
claims, including the rights of future generations. We have to
find a new approach to achieve sustainable development. A
Green Economy is an alternative vision for growth and
development; which generate growth and improvements in life
in ways consistent with sustainable development. A Green
Economy promotes a triple bottom line: sustaining and
advancing economic, environmental and social well-being. It’s
focus on sustainable development, poverty reduction, low
carbon, resource efficient, and socially inclusive. In a green
economy, growth in income and employment should be
enhancing energy and resource efficiency. It’s focused on
increasing GDP above all other goals. It comes with significant
social, environmental and economic costs. Since the United
Nations Conference on Environment and Development 1992,
has focused on achieving sustainable development, economy in
general and green economy in particular. The research will
shed light on one of the most successful case studies in green
economy (The Republic of Korea), and then propose a strategy
as a flexible policy framework that provides seven principles to
achieve green economy.
