This chapter presents the assessment methods available for moving from the previously constructed growth model to an understanding of the concrete conditions for the transition to a green economy. This transition is still only in its infancy, with the first moves to introduce the value of natural capital into the economy now being taken. With regard to the climate system, the value collectively attributed to its preservation is measured by the costs associated with greenhouse gas emissions, more commonly termed the “carbon price.” The methods for introducing this price into the economic system are now well known, but both nationally and internationally.
