This paper aims to present the concept of Sustainable Futures, which grew out of global dialogues to more recently transfer into policy making. The paper seeks to discuss how foresight is used to understand the implications of global changes, focusing on the role of green economy strategies in fostering societal, economic progress and environmental conservation. In particular, the use of green economy indicators is reviewed, focusing on the measuring frameworks proposed by different organizations. Finally, an integrated approach is proposed to carry out a systemic and cross-sectoral assessment of key policy instruments aimed at facilitating the transition to a more sustainable future.
