We support public institutions and private entities in triggering their economic development in a sustainable and innovative manner, facilitating the adoption of new low carbon technologies and blue and circular approaches

Sustainable economy

Developing countries have experienced large economic growth rates and major social advances in recent years. However, challenges continue to be huge in a continuously evolving worldwide economic scenario, where new concerns arise for emerging countries willing to consolidate their mid-income status and developing countries trying to reach their next development level. In parallel, developed economies, through green, circular and blue economy approaches, are undertaking a profound transition of their productive structures, aiming at accelerating the transition towards more efficient and non-emitting sources of energy to reach full decarbonisation of their economies.

OCA Global, through its Sustainable Economy Division, focuses its efforts on promoting a low carbon, resource efficiency and socially inclusive green economic growth and reducing the social unbalances in emerging, developing and developed countries, while advocating for sustainable and environmentally friendly economic and social policies, laws and regulations.
