Green industrial policy is normally conceived as measures to foster the development of new green sectors. This chapter explores the ways in which such sectors can be fostered by disrupting existing polluting sectors. It explores several case studies of this dynamic in action, including fossil fuel subsidy reform and others, and distills lessons for policy makers on the judicious use of disruption as a tool for green industrial policy.
Keywords: green industrial policy, disruption subsidies, transition reform
