Eco-innovation represents for the Basque Country an opportunity to grow while other environmental targets are achieved. In the Basque Country it can be considered that in 2011 about 161 M€ of the investment would be «green», 28% of the total investment in innovation. Using the Input-Out Tables, in the present document we study the impact of these investments in eco-innovation on the Basque economy. Thus, it is estimated that taking into account the direct and the indirect effects, as a consequence of the multiplicative effect, the eco-innovation has generated an increase in the production of 1,967 M€ and the creation of 11,280 jobs.
