Many works in innovation research use path dependencies to explain the fact that change is often difficult to achieve. With regard to a transition to a Green Economy, this paper identifies specific path dependencies in 15 areas of transformation in the sectors of mobility, food, housing and raw material in Germany. One of the overarching observations is that for a successful transition to a Green Economy, the role of the state seems to be central.Download
