Green Jobs: Towards decent work in a sustainable, low-carbon world (report overview)

The present overview draws on evidence and findings presented in the report “Green Jobs: Towards Decent Work in a Sustainable, Low-Carbon World”. While the overview is consistent with the report, it also includes reflections emerging from the exchanges among the partners of the Green Jobs Initiative not contained in the original report. The original report is commissioned and funded by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), as part of the Green Jobs Initiative jointly mounted by UNEP, the International Labour Organization (ILO), the International Organisation of Employers (IOE) and the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC). It is produced by the Worldwatch Institute, with technical assistance from the Cornell University Global Labour Institute, for UNEP.
