Today, nef (the new economics foundation) publishes a new report – The Great Transition. It marks the launch a of 40 year long initiative to make the transition to an economy that is both climate friendly and solves, simultaneously, a broad swathe of connected social problems related to inequality. Crucially, the plan is based on the assumption that it is not possible for an advanced, industrialised nation like the UK to achieve those goals if its resource-hungry economy continues to grow in conventional GDP terms.

The second link will take you to an article that summarises the report. The third link is an independent assessment by the economics editor of the UK-based Guardian newspaper.
