Abstract

This paper aiming at investigating the impact of renewable combustible and waste on the economic growth and environmental quality for the case of Tunisia using the ARDL bounds testing approach during the period 1971-2018. The results confirm the presence of long-run relationships between the combustible renewables and waste and the aggregate wealth proxy and the ecological proxies, respectively. Furthermore, for the production function model, our empirical results reflect that combustible renewables and waste exerts a significant positive effect on economic growth. For the environmental model, the findings confirm that combustible renewables and waste has a negative effect on environmental quality. From this outlook, the perspectives on the use of renewable energy use in Tunisia seem to be constructive and positive. The transition towards friendly energy sources is the main response to the climate emergency for a green economy in accordance with the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).The encouragement of sustainable consumption, sustainable goods, and practices will be the main element towards the achievement of the green transition of the structure Tunisian economy as a whole.
