This study identifies environmentally friendly growth potential of selected sectors in Uganda. An innovative survey of owners and top managers of firms in sectoral value chains in Uganda enables a ranking of economic growth prospects, on the one hand, and aspects of sustainability, on the other hand. The results reveal employment, investment and export growth potential at the sector level. The findings suggest a double dividend related to green growth. The sustainability ranking has identified other priority sectors than the economic growth ranking. Hence, the lever for green growth policies (e.g., green finance) appears to be higher in the sectors that also exhibit bigger growth potential. In addition, green growth requires supporting industrial sectors, more sustainable business practices and resolving issues related to the public administration's enforcement of environmental regulations.
