ILO: the transition to a Green Economy will generate more than sufficient number of jobs under the 2015 Paris Agreement’s 2-degree limit to global warming
Planet Labor, 21 May 2018, n°10688 -

On 18 May, the ILO launched their flagship World Employment and Social Outlook (WESO) report focused on “Greening with Jobs”. The report finds that 24 million new jobs will be created globally by 2030 if the right policies to promote a greener economy are put in place. Despite the loss of 6 million jobs in some sectors, the net increase of approximately 18 million jobs across the world will be the result of the adoption of sustainable practices, electrification of vehicles, and increases in energy efficiency in existing and future buildings. Measures taken in the production and use of energy will have an impact at the regional level. Net job creation will be noted in Europe, the Americas, Asia and the Pacific, to the order of 2 million, 3 million, and 14 million jobs respectively.
