Green jobs

Nature and work are intrinsically connected. Our lives depend on the natural environment. Our jobs and businesses depend on a healthy planet. Our future depends on a just transition to a carbon- and resource efficient economy. Climate change and environmental degradation are already disrupting millions of jobs and livelihoods. Yet countless opportunities lie ahead to boost the economy and improve the quality of working lives. ILO studies show that implementing the Paris Agreement on Climate Change could create a net gain of 18 million jobs by 2030.
