There is worldwide attention on environmental innova-tion as concepts and political agendas focus on chal-lenges related to green growth, low-carbon technology development and sustainability transition. Central to meeting these challenges is the need to address the tensions between the environment and the current (unsustainable) economic regime.

A reorientation of investments to greener industries and businesses relies largely on green technological innovation and the creation of new sectors, with both elements driven by policy initiatives (Schot and Steinmueller 2018; Geels et al. 2017; Borel-Saladin and Turok 2013).
