LANDMARK NEW REPORT SAYS EMERGING GREEN ECONOMY COULD CREATE TENS OF MILLIONS OF NEW "GREEN JOBS"
NEW YORK, 24 September 2008 - A new, landmark study on the impact of
an emerging global "green economy" on the world of work says efforts to
tackle climate change could result in the creation of millions of new
"green jobs" in the coming decades.
The new report 1/ entitled Green Jobs: Towards Decent work in a
Sustainable, Low-Carbon World, says changing patterns of employment and
investment resulting from efforts to reduce climate change and its effects
are already generating new jobs in many sectors and economies, and could
create millions more in both developed and developing countries.
