Many countries of the Asia and the Pacific region have voluntarily committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2020 or carbon intensity per unit of GDP. In this regard, directing the Asian economy toward an environmentally sustainable and low carbon development path will bring profound and lasting adjustments to the socio-economic structures of countries in the region. Among other outcomes, this transformation will trigger shifts in labour markets by creating demand for some workers with new skills and a need to re-skill others. Social protection schemes will be required for workers – and financing for employers – in sectors most exposed to the required changes. The effects of climate change on the world in which we live have been debated at length but the effects of climate change as they relate to our world of work are not always fully understood. For example, policies implemented to offset or adapt to climate change will result in changes to the way businesses function and the type of work undertaken. When this issue is raised in discussion, it is often considered in a negative context – seen as a drain on the economy and an impediment to competitiveness. In fact, most recent studies have shown that climate-smart policies can bring environmental, economic and social benefits together. Commitment at the highest political level will be required to ensure that environmental policy debates also address the gender and social dimension more prominently and that job recovery policies take a more environmentally sustainable path. The changes in production and consumption patterns that are called for in the drive towards a climate friendly economy require decision makers to specifically consider the social, gender and employment impact of their responses to climate changes. The involvement of all three ILO Constituents (Government, Employer and Worker Organizations) is, therefore, critical when developing inclusive and coherent climate policies. The Green Jobs Initiative was established in 2007 as a partnership between the ILO, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC). The International Organization of Employers joined in 2008. The Green Jobs Initiative forms a part of the ILO’s efforts in helping realize the potential for.
A positive labour market transition through the introduction of green jobs as a positive response to the challenge of climate change. Green jobs also contribute to a low-carbon development, adaptation to the impacts of climate change and reducing the environmental impacts of enterprises and economic sectors, ultimately to levels that are sustainable.
