Sustainable development, decent work and green jobs

At its 312th Session (November 2011), the Governing Body placed an item on “sustainable development, decent work and green jobs” on the agenda of the 102nd Session of the International Labour Conference (2013) for general discussion. The last time this topic featured on the agenda of the Conference was in 1990 when the Director-General presented a report on “Environment and the World of Work” and the Conference adopted a resolution concerning environment, development, employment and the role of the ILO. While this resolution remains broadly relevant, the extent of the environmental and social challenges, the knowledge on the relationships between environmental sustainability, employment, social protection and incomes and the political resolve to act on these relationships have evolved dramatically.
