CBI Report (2012) states: a green business boost could increase the UK's growth rate by 0.5% by 2015, a gain of nearly £20bn in GDP and it could add £800m to net exports. Fiona Harvey (2012), Guardian environment correspondent, adds that green jobs and the growing ranks of green businesses are one of the few bright spots of the UK's recession hit economy – environmental and low-carbon business now makes up 8% of the UK's GDP and provided a third of what growth the economy has seen. There are now nearly 1 million people employed in green jobs, from biofuels and electric car manufacturing to wind turbine installation, with more than 25,000 jobs created last year. The green sector is now bigger than car manufacturing, aerospace or telecoms. This special issue will review the latest development in eco-entrepreneurship theory and practice.
