Abstract

[automatically translated] The economic recovery and interest in environmental issues are being studied by many countries and international organizations with the aim to define a development path centered on a "green growth" (green growth). The green economy (green economy) can be defined as a system that aims at a development that uses resources in an efficient and sustainable, so as to ensure that the health andthe growth is not depleting the natural heritage and this can be renewed by continuing to provide over time environmental resources and services. In the definition of the objectives of green growth will highlight the shortcomings of GDP as the sole indicator of reference. The debate obsolescence of GDP as a measure of growth that is not only economic, develops in two directions. On one side, you want to include in its definition of environmental accounting system, with the objective to change the economic growth indicator in its definition phase. On the other hand, it is preferred to combine it some steps that represent other dimensions, other than the purely economic. In this last tendency it is found a recent OECD proposal suggesting a set of indicators to monitor progress towards a green growth. This paper aims to analyze the degree of sustainable development in Italy at the regional level, using a set of indicators to provide a snapshot of reality valid for comparisons over time. The objective of adding a set of variables in a single indicator stems from the desire to synthesize a multidimensional aspect as a whole, even at the expense of information relating to the individual aspects. Among the criteria used in the identification of green growth indicators have been considered key aspects of both "growth" and the "green" and their main factors. Moreover, in the selection of indicators we were considered the principles of political importance, analytical robustness and measurability as commonly accepted for the construction of an ideal indicator. Therefore, in the interest of conducting a regional analysis of sustainable development, we committed ourselves to follow a measurement framework designed at a national level of detail and whose starting point is to be fixed to the sphere of production.
