Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue, entitled “Environment and Sustainable Economic Growth, 2nd Edition”, aims to address empirical and theoretical concepts in environmental and sustainable economic development. It will include up-to-date research on sustainable economic development, the influence of economic activities on pollution in general, as well as government and energy policies and consumption that influence environmental degradation. It will also address waste and recycling management, circular economy, and how they impact environmental sustainability.

In recent decades, there has been a notable increase in environmental damage, mostly due to the increase in economic growth and development globally. Moreover, many energy and environmental policies have been implemented in order to achieve sustainable economic growth and development. Therefore, there has been an increase in complexity and the number of multidimensional paths among the different features of economic sustainability. Increases in globalization, economic complexity and the surge of digital technologies have made these relations work at fluctuating configurational scales, ensuing in regional and global dynamics.

This Special Issue is focused on the connection between economic growth and sustainable development, involving the environmental, social, and economic aspects of sustainable economic development. Moreover, it will address the utilization of global case studies, the rise of digital technologies, and interdisciplinary perspectives. This Special Issue will deliver an inclusive account of sustainable development and the economics of environmental protection research that focuses on the environmental, geographical, economic, evolutionary and social–ecological environment.

This Special Issue, entitled “Environment and Sustainable Economic Growth, 2nd Edition”, aims to address comprehensive research in energy and environmental economic studies. Themes may include, but are not limited to, energy conservation, energy market commodities, and government regulations linked to environmental protection, international trade, economic development and growth. A wide range of methods can be utilized, including surveys, econometrics, equilibrium models, analytical models, simulation models, and optimization models. Recently, there has been a notable increase in research that examines the effect of globalization, government policies, economic complexity and digitalization on pollution. Therefore, this Special Issue will provide up-to-date empirical research connected to energy and environmental economics.
