Skills and occupational needs in green building

Demand for workers in retrofitting and new green construction is expected to grow over the coming years but the lack of appropriate skills in the workforce can hamper the development of the sector and its potential benefits. New skill needs related to energy efficiency, water management and renewable energies in buildings are emerging. Skills-led strategies can drive the green building sector forward.
This report brings together the findings from 34 countries and arises from a joint EC/ILO project on Knowledge sharing in early identification of skill needs.
