Abstract: Abstract This paper reviews some theoretical and policy issues that underpin environment-economy interactions, for a preliminary reflection on a conceptual framework of Green economy. Concepts of transition and transversality serve as criteria to distinguish structural and dimensional issues. The former refer to structural processes towards a green economy, whereas the later refer to intertemporal society’s preferences behind the green growth process. Trade-offs between ecological, economic social and institutional constraints suggest that market -based policies should be mitigated through mix policies accounting for green capacities, that is the potential of green technologies for decoupling economic growth from environmental damage.
