Jobs in green and healthy transport: Making the green shift

This joint report by the ILO and UNECE report estimates the employment impact of investing in public transport and making them free, as well as moving towards electrification of vehicles in the member states of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE).

The report estimates the job creation potential of green and healthy transport by reviewing the economy-wide employment implications of an accelerated shift towards greener land transport in the ECE region. The report shows how changes towards green and healthy transport alter the structure of sectors and jobs across ECE member States and also in other parts of the world, given that greening the transport sector activates di­fferent national, regional and global value chains and employment in di­fferent industries and areas of the world.
