Note Services and the Green Economy addresses a significant gap in the knowledge and understanding of sustainable economic development. Bringing together a range of expert contributions the book analyses the role of services and service industries in the transition to a greener economy. Framed by an approach within environmental economic geography, chapters written by leading researchers from a range of disciplines explore how service industries, service firms and service activities are at heart of green economic processes. Adopting a global perspective, it includes research from the US, Europe, South America and Japan, providing a detailed insight into how the crucial role of service industry activity has often been ignored in current understandings of a green economic transition
