Global growth goals

Three interlocking goals—sustainability, inclusion, and growth—are critical for realizing a better global future. Senior partners Kweilin Ellingrud, Sven Smit, and Jonathan Woetzel and coauthors explore the tensions and trade-offs that can accompany the efforts to achieve these goals. For example, G20 member countries with lower incomes emit less CO2 per capita than wealthier economies, but they also tend to show less-desirable outcomes on inclusion measurements.

Among the G20 member countries, there are considerable differences in outcomes for growth, inclusion, and sustainability.
