For the literature on the topic, the conceptualization of the green industry is comprehensive from an environmental point of view; for the actors who work on a daily basis, it is more focused on decarbonization

There is a large difference between the definitions of green industrialization found in the literature and those provided in interviews and focus groups. While in the bibliographical review the conceptualization is more comprehensive from an environmental point of view, the other side shows that, in its practical application in Brazil, green industrialization deals directly with the climate problem and the decarbonization process of industry, not only in relation to the adaptation to climate change, but also as an attempt to solve the problem.

This is a small summary of the research report “Green Industrialization in Brazil,” developed by Climate Tracker, which is an international non-profit organization with headquarters in Santiago, Chile. It seeks to promote and encourage climate journalism in the region, with contributions from interviews with Rosana Santos, the executive director of the E+ Institute and Nelson Karam, the coordinator of studies and research about work and the environment at the Inter-Union Department of Statistics and Socioeconomic Studies (DIEESE), both iCS grantees, and Victoria Santos, from the Institute team.
