Green Economy, Rio+20, and Greenwashing

I just finished reading an excellent article entitled Rio+20 and the greenwashing of the global economy

The article explains how the business lobby has tried to influence the green economy concept of that the UN has introduced.

The green economy is a term used by the UN as part of the Green Economy Initiative. But as I said previously,

"... in that site I find no definition of the term, instead you see constant referral to "greening the economy". Those are not the same."

We need to have a real green economy, not a greenwashed economy.
